What To Do

with two acres full of sand?

Well, if you want anything to grow without blowing away in the winds we have around here, AND if you don’t want to water it constantly because the sand doesn’t hold any water, then you have to add something to it.  Topsoil, mulch, compost, or manure.  All work just fine, but we chose to go with the stinkiest choice (and, for us, the free choice).

Last weekend, Aaron made several trips to Three-Mile Farms and the Dairy out there to get loads and loads of nice, fresh, and stinky manure to spread all over our sandy ground.  Katelyn rode iwth him once before heading to her mom’s for the rest of the weekend.  Reagan decided she wanted to see the dairy cows, so the two of us rode along with him for his final load.  Since it is such a long trip, we did take the laptop and a movie for Miss Reagan.  Tod came along for the ride, too.  Reagan loved checking out all the cows and seeing how many were there.

The trip took a long time, and was very tiring.  Reagan conked out within fifteen minutes of hitting the freeway on the way home.  Tod was pretty worn out, too, apparently.  He fell asleep on Aaron’s foot under all the paddles.

Once we got home, though Tod decided being right in the thick of things was where he needed to be, and he decided to help Aaron unload the trailer.

Now that Spring is here, we will finally be doing a lot of work on the landscaping and property itself, so stay tuned for updates!
