More Of The Same

The weather has been absolutely beautiful lately....cold during the night but sunny during the day.

  I don't have anything wildly inviting to report today, just more of the same.....hauling seaweed and beach mulch.   I just love the stuff and can't get enough of it. 

And here's my beach buddy...

Sometimes I just fill the back of the truck, but lately I've been using buckets and garbage cans because it makes unloading so much easier.

I've been stockpiling the mulch in my empty tubs and plan to use it next year for potatoes, tomatoes and carrots...

You got to "make hay while the sun shines!"
