And then there was dirt….

.

Since the stone border was complete, it was time for the next step. Garden soil.

.

.

Thankfully our local Agway had a giant pile and it was only a few miles away.

(Action shot)

Though why my husband kept bringing back such small piles I don’t know.

.

.

He made 7 trips, half a yard each time. And I kept spreading it while he went back for more.

.

.

I’m hoping it’s good soil.

.

.

But I’ll mix some fertilizer in before I plant just in case.

Another action shot.

It should not surprise you to learn that halfway through the process the husband decided I was raking incorrectly and relieved me of the job.

🤣

      1. Tines up when you want to smooth the surface without moving lots of material. I’m here for you, Riverdude. On a related matter, I’m loving your black dirt, wish I had some.

      2. Bud…love that 😉 Here’s a question that’s burning in the collective unconscious. The “tines down” photo clearly shows a beautifully manicured thumbnail, cut square (Blunt? Nail salon terminology is a couple steps outside my wheelhouse.) with a French tip. Yours? Hmmm. So, who took the picture? My money’s on satellite reconnaissance.

  1. Let me think. 1. Flower bed. 1. Full of soil. 1. Adding fertilizer. 1. But not seeding. Add them all up, 1+1+1+1=1. Next season — if not sooner — you should have a 1 wonderful bed of weeds.
    And if you don’t, tell us, why not!

  2. Oh, FYI, you don’t want dirt or mulch covering the base of the tree (the root flare). Do a quick Google on tree planting. I love the stone – it looks great!
