Finished hauling in the bulk pitcher delivery today.


It only took two trips per pallet with the golf cart and mini-trailer.

Wow! I bet you're glad that is done!

Will the barn keep the cardboard boxes dry? Don't forget to use those empty boxes in the garden over the next few years.

Mona --- We sure are! Especially since it's now pouring, which means no more driving the golf cart for a few days.

With its new roof, the barn should be dry except for a bit of splashing in during extremely heavy storms. The pitchers should be fine inside their boxes for the next two years. :-)

I'm actually drooling over the boxes already. They're my favorite for kill mulches (which I know because we were getting the pitchers from the Dollar Store by the box anyway). Plus, the seven pallets will come in handy! Almost no waste except the tape on the boxes and the shrink wrap that held the pallets together.
