We got a bunch done in the garden area over the weekend. After hours of back breaking wet dirt hauling uphill (harder than you would think I promise), I decided renting another skid steer was worth it to get the garden ready.
Here's a before picture. The boys are climbing on the latest tree casualty. You can't see in the after picture below but it got ripped out. Dirt mound on the left got moved up to the top of the lot.
Thank you machinery for making things easy. Oh and maybe I should mention Cam who was behind it for the most part.
Here's where I hope I don't get in trouble. We gave Cruz a turn driving the skid steer with Dad standing near by of course.
You can almost see his expression in the picture. It was pure elation.
We got a trencher attachment and Cam went to town lining out where the fence will go. We trenched it all the way around so we could bury the fence a foot deep to keep out critters. After an armadillo got in my garden last year, I'm taking all precautions necessary!
Now I just hope we can get post holes dug and fence in before rain fills in the trench with dirt. Garden is roughly 40 x 80 feet.
