Before and After

This is what our front yard looked like before the soil was scheduled to arrive…

And this is what it looked like after…

This is what the backyard looked like in preparation for many wheelbarrow loads of incoming soil…




And this is what it looks like now…




What’s that now? It doesn’t look any different you say? No shit. Literally. The much anticipated delivery was cancelled because the soil people ran out of manure.

It happens.

But it’s not all bad news. Apparently they have just sourced a couple of five year old piles aged to perfection. If I understood correctly it will be a heady blend of cattle and horse with hints of sheep.

I sound like a manure sommelier.

Long story short, it should be arriving on Friday and it should be worth the extra wait.

Or at least that’s what I’m telling my pot bound plants.
