    *sigh* I hate you guys in the midwest. You have all the nice dirt.

    So did you dig all of that out with just the loader? Looks like it would have been a nice project to put a back blade to use too.

    Best time of the year to start moving dirt. It's thawed out and nice and soft we haven't even had much rain to make things muddy!

    Looks good.

    Sure is fun to play in the dirt

    Yes I was blessed with great soil out here. Our house is on a hill. It drops to our pond and woods. The farther down you go, the more sandy it gets, but on the top of the property, the soil is awesome.
