By all rights, I should be buff and tone, with a nice tan! Instead, my arms drag behind me on the ground, I can't pull my t-shirt over my head, and I have a funky farmer's tan!
All because of mulch!
Front walkway with new mulch!
I drove my pickup to the nursery and the sales lady told me that it would hold two "scoops" of mulch! Scooped by a Bobcat with a large bucket on the front. Yeah, it didn't hold two scoops, it held one scoop with part of it on the ground behind the truck! So the Bobcat operator said that I could come back and get the other scoop later.
So I hauled it home and about killed myself unloading the entire truck full of mulch with a pitchfork! I think my face turned a new shade of red doing it! Something along the lines of Pre-Stroke Magenta!
Just dump it out and go back for more!
Once unloaded, I had to haul it back for the second load! Of course, I was too tired to unload it that day, it would have to wait til the next day.
This is the second load partially unloaded, 'cause I forgot to take the picture before I started! I had to raced to unload it all before picking up the in-laws at the airport!
After you unload it, you gotta spread it around! On your hands and knees!
Eventually, I just backed the truck to the bed and started flinging out the mulch! I even resorted to shoving it out with my feet!
But isn't it pretty?? I may never move again!
So, I'm taking my gorilla arms, my Stud Muffin and heading to Almost Grown's graduation!! Back next week!!
