Community Garden - We Have Dirt!

It seems like it took FOR-E-VER but we finally have dirt at the community garden!

It's actually a sandy loam/compost mix that can be mixed with the existing clay soil and amended with other things.

I brought my wheelbarrow to deal with the pile but since I was having to shovel the dirt from the wheelbarrow and into planting beds, the wheelbarrow turned out to be really inefficient. I could go a lot faster with my new yard cart and three 5-gallon buckets. I could fill the buckets at the pile, roll to the planting bed and empty the buckets.

It is a massive pile and I did manage to get some help for this part of the project.'s going to take a while...
