    spreading crushed shell

    so me and my little helper spread some shell the other day on the driveway. tried to get my wife to take more/better pics but she was too busy. after i roughly spread it out with the loader, i used my pine straw rake to even it out like a landscape rake. the shells are just light enough not to bend the tines. i will try and get some after pics this evening.

    but it turned out pretty nice. probably could have used a little more shell but we just did it to look nice for showings as we are selling the house.

    Hey there neighbor,

    I used to go to a rope swing somewhere in the woods off of Rt 58 in Carver when I was a more limber age.

    Looking at your photo, it's too bad no one makes a 3pt hitch baby seat, eh? Hmmm...yet another Artillian idea!

    Anyway, good luck on your house sale.

    Right job, right tool. Looking pretty good. Sell the house but don't sell the tractor.

    Thanks for the post.

    thanks. he just realized that he can ride in the little cart if i attach it but a 3 pt hitch attachment would be good for his younger brother.

    there are a ton of little water holes in carver. i have only lived here for a few years but we have hit a few of them up for a swim.

    jruffner, what kind of shells are they? They look nice. Your little helper will be taking over the drivers seat and having all the fun before you know it. Good job and good luck selling your place.

    Looks like it makes a pretty drive, the limestone gravel I use melts away after a few years and needs to be replaced .... do the shells last long?

    Thanks jruffner. I probably couldn't buy it around here... but it's intresting to learn what products are available around the country.

    Growing up on Cape Cod, clamshells are/were used all over the place. I don't believe they decompose very quickly if at all, though I've never thought to look into it. I just remember the stuff being in the same places year after year with no replenishment. If anything, they just sort of get mashed into the dirt as time goes by. It's a great substance that doesn't get too hot in the sun and sure looks nice. If you really want to top it off, you can add a cobblestone apron at the road end of the driveway. Also, if you were staying in the house, you'd want to border the drive to keep it contained.
