Moving Mountains

This weekend we moved 8 cubic yards of garden mulch (and when I say "we" I mean mostly Mark!  The load was delivered up on the street Saturday around noon and by 3 pm Sunday (before it started to rain) it was all down the hill and roughly where we wanted it!  It makes the garden look neater, and now the plants and pond stand out more.  We'll add more plants bit by bit.

 So how did he do this amazing feat of super-human achievement?  Our secret is currently hiding in the garage:
We bought this Polaris ATV about 5 years ago just for this kind of work and this weekend it really earned its keep!  We wouldn't have been able to move all that mulch (one wheelbarrow-full at a time!) without it.  Of course, I didn't want Mark to buy it, and now that we have it, I can see what a huge advantage it is on our backs!

So the garden is looking better and better!  Now all we need to do is move this pile of stones for the pathway!  Maybe next weekend...
