We've got dirt!

Yesterday the garden was ready for some dirt! Pete and Cleary took the truck up to Dorrington for a load of soil. They compost local yard waste (mostly pine needles) and sell the soil. you can see lots of bits of decomposing pine needles in the soil. Shannon examined it and said "There is not enough dirt in this soil."

We figured it would be easiest to dump the soil in before putting up the fence. Pete backed up the truck full of soil and started unloading.

Ainsley and I helped a little bit. She was in a "don't put me down" and "I'm refusing to nap" kind of week, so I have not been able to help much.

Cleary and Shannon were forced to do some work as well.

By the end of the day the dirt was in and the fences were up!
