What are you doing today?

I hooked up the trailer and bought 3 scoops of mulch and wifey and I got it all spread out in the flower beds. Whew. Wore me out. I had procrastinated on this for as long as I could. I finally got tired of hearing "Those flower beds really need some mulch". :yum:

So what are you up to (today, tomorrow etc.)?
 
Took the tiller off the tractor, Loader and bucket on so I can put the mower dck on, take loader off and try to start mowing one of two times. The grass is so long it will have to be done in two. I started out still too wet just lumps up.

That's why I got the ZTR
 
Took half the covers off the greenhouse fans and stacked some more wood. Then wife and I planted 12 maple trees and 7 cedar trees along the lane. I am down to 8 bags of mulch so I need to take the truck and get another pallet. $280 bucks!:w00t2: Dug some more dandelions out of the one flower bed and now she wants the 3 crabapples that she swore were blueberries dug out. If it was up to me I would hook my small chain around them and rip them out with the backhoe. Still might do that if she goes away.:yum::yum:
 
Set up irrigation system in one field. Started prepping for a sale tomorrow. Trying not to go nuts.
 
I cut down a dead tree today with my Stihl 026 and trusty farm boss. I had to stand in the bucket of the skid steer to saw and push the tree over with the 580L extendahoe. :mrgreen: It was to windy to get the line truck out. Pretty red neckish way of doing it but I didn't take out any buildings this time. :clap:

Looks like me and the Amish kids were there. Standing in the bucket beats the hell out of trying to work from a ladder. Safer also.:flowers:
 
Went to work today. Came home and cleaned the house so I don't have to do much this weekend. Heading out in the morning to find some mud with the atv's. Got company coming tomorrow afternoon:wink: and staying till sunday:brows:.

Should be a good weekend again!:brows:
 
I worked today.
TGIF!
Got the next 3 days off!
Nothing planned for the weekend other than cleaning, catching up on my laundry.. oh and hanging out on here much more than I should.. heh!
 
Today (Saturday) getting the Landrover out of the barn and hooking up its trailer to go to my first rally of the season later today.
 
Firing up my favorite twisty-turn car for a ride through the mountains. Probably end up in Helen GA for lunch and then a nice leisurely cruse back to the cabin. Forward… a burger awaits!
 
Looks like I will be hunting House Sparrows all day. It seems as though there is a war going on outside. The bluebirds already have been forced out of their homes. The Tree Swallows are back helping the Bluebirds but it seems like the House Sparrows have come to help already. I have caught one House Sparrow already but it looks like I have a ways to go. But if I do nothing the House Sparrows will eventually kill the Blue Birds and Tree Swallows.
 
Didn't you leave yet? Must be a late lunch.:whistling: I am stacking more wood since it cooled down a good bit. Taking a break from climbing up and down filling in the top rows. Need to mow again if it ever dries off.
 
Bill - why bagged mulch (at $280)? A full truck or trailer load can be had for less then 1/2 of that. It all looks the same after a month or so.

Don't know what I did the other day but somehow hurt my lower back. Will putter today but not get into anything requiring a lot of bending as that's when it hurts most.

A tri axle load runs over $500. Had bad luck with it as they bring a lot of thistle seed with it. It actually covers more with a pallet full and last longer. With all the pellet factories running up here the only place that does bulk mulch charges out the butt and is over 35 miles away. He only sells tri axle loads period. As far as the back, have you been digging a lot? Or working the wife?:yum::yum:
 
That is sure different than here. All the lawn and garden places get bulk mulch and sell it by the scoop load (bobcat scoop). They dump it in your truck or trailer. 3 scoops is all my 6x12 utility trailer could hold. The scoops cost only 26 dollars each. Much more economical than by the bag. Easy to pull the trailer close to where you want it, then I would shovel it into a trash can and my wife would dump them and spread it where she wanted it. We found that way to be better than throwing shovel fulls at the places that needed the mulch. Sure glad I don't have to buy it by the bag. Even if it cost the same, this way seems like less hassle.

Today my back is recuperating from shoveling all that mulch. Pulled out one of the SIL's boats. Cleaned it up. If the rain drizzle quits this afternoon there is a good chance we'll dump the boat in the water for a little cruise. :D
