8 Yards of Compost: Spread

Let’s be honest…shoveling dirt is a lot of work. A lot. A. Lot. I know from experience, although I’d rather not.

After getting our raised beds built, I realized I actually needed to put something in them. We’ve got a decent amount of compost in the works but it’s not ready and it’s nowhere close to being enough to fill all seven of our beds. So, I had eight yards of compost delivered from a local landscape materials company.

As you can see from the photo below…eight yards of compost is nothing to shake a stick at. Or a shovel. But a shovel is precisely what I needed to get that junk in to the beds.

Compost Pile

So it began. I made around 50 trips with the wheelbarrow from the pile to the beds and finally got it all finished yesterday. Relief.

    To me, as I’m sure it is to you, that is a beautiful sight.
