A Ton of Dirt

A ton and a half, actually.

Today, one week after I had originally planned, we finally got the twin gardens filled with dirt.  I was hoping it would only take about 20 bags each, boy was I way off.  We went through 80 bags, 40 in each, and more will come as it settles in.  At about 40 pounds per bag, I threw around 3200 pounds of dirt today.  Wow.  My back is sore, yet not injured.  We'll see what it feels like tomorrow...

One of the next things to do is the fence around it.  I've just been making this up as I go along so we'll see how that turns out!
