I figured I had better start a thread. As posted in another thread along with new work.

Last week my wife made a new garden where we had one years ago. She used the walk behind rototiller then removed the sod from the area. She used some scrap 2x6's to make raised beds and put down weed control fabric. I (yes me) had 10 tons of topsoil delivered this morning to use in the raise beds. Topsoil was about 100 yards from work area so she used the tractor with FEL to fill the boxes.
I didn't even get to supervise I was at work.

Wife had some mulch delivered yesterday while I was at work.

Now isn't that special, 8 yards!

Done and a lot of mulch left over, :lol: Guess she will have some for her rock garden and...................................

nice job.....its great when you can look at a piece of equipment and appreciate the work it saved you! I need to get topsoil and mulch as well!!!! i had started a drainage ditch down in the woods and I was taking some of that topsoil and using it to help fill in the stump holes.....but i need to just buy 10 yards and get it delivered right up next to the house...save a lot of time...

i may do a garden NEXT year....way too much on the plate this year

You never know what you will need or how much, at least I don't. I always figured the delivery cost was the same or close no matter how much I buy so I always go for the biggest truck.
Currently on hand, approximately....
6 yards of crusher run
3 yards of 3/4" store
3 yards of crap topsoil
5 yards of better crap topsoil
6 yards of red mulch
2 Yards of shot rock

Can anyone comment on this small shed? The good or the bad?
The cost of this garden keeps going up more and more. I won't live long enough get get enough vegetables from it.:lol:
Oh well Babycakes is having a good time, and needs a garden shed and...? and....?..... So far this Spring she has at least 4 times the seat time on the tractor than I do.

Gizmo would like to say he spoils Babycakes. But in reality I think he has to spoil her to keep her around!:lol: :drinks:
