Another alternative workout

13 Apr

At home this time, it is time to spruce up the landscape with mulch.  We usually order 10 cubic yards of mulch.  Since this week was a solo project, I ordered 5 cubic yards.  At 500 pounds per cubic yard, the challenge was 2500 pounds or 1.25 tons.  So, less work than moving firewood….hmmmm (see previous post).  I had a rain delay before finishing.  No comment on the hours nor pace.

Does this look like 2500 pounds?

I got great coverage of the landscape for the street view.  I’ll be moving and adding plants in the next couple of weeks, then finish with the next 5 cubic yards.

I also found the Asiatic lilies I moved in the fall.  They popped up behind the new iris bulbs.  I need to make notes on my checklists 🙂
