Wheel Barrow!

This is kind of old news, but once we finally got a shed I could get a wheel barrow and not have it sit out in the rain for it's whole life!

Over my spring break I finished moving our famous and well established giant pile of mulch out of our drive way, one barrow full at a time. Our paths are now all dug out and filled with wood chips.

The wheel barrow is so handy! I can fill it with weeds and then just wheel them all over to the compost heap. I can leave the weeds in it and create chicken fun land. I can wheel my chickens around in it. If I still had more mulch to move I could continue to move it around. I can move manure, compost and other garden dirt essentials from place to place. I enjoyed borrowing the wheel barrow from the tool lending library, but I'm really enjoying having my own!

You forgot to mention that you could invite guests to collapse in comfort into your full wheelbarrow & be wheeled around on a tour of your garden. are the bees?
No mention of bees for days & days.
Our gardens up here have gone right over the top with all this out-of-season sunshine. There are so many blossoms in our yard.... wild roses, domestic roses, yellow oniony things, peonies, poppies so huge they're falling over, a tal tree covered in little white waxy fragrant bells that move in the slightest wind so I can't get a good foto of them, rhodies......on & on..........& the bees are in some sort of ecstasy tumbling around inside the polleny crevices. They appear drunk! so many kinds of bees. And now butterflies. And a resident pair of hummingbirds.
