Flower bed gardening with a front-end loader? Yep. Go big or stay home.
We scored a couple of dump truck loads of wood chips from the Town and spent the weekend spreading it around the trees and flower beds. It all looks so much better already, and should help keep in some of the moisture, if this turns out to be as dry a summer as is being predicted.
As you can see, the kidlets were also working hard. To borrow a phrase from the play on Saturday night (which was very entertaining), having those two help is like having 4 good men not show up.
