Hauling manure in the Kubota

Manure pile

Shovel manureWith one session of Driver's Ed under my belt, Mark certified me to take the Kubota out for a solo adventure. It was pure pleasure to be able to toodle along through the floodplain without worrying about getting stuck in the mud!

I put a little more manure in the bed this time around since I don't think my previous trip got anywhere near the load limit. Three very full wheelbarrow loads was enough to smother a third of the back garden in rich, high-nitrogen fertility.
