Work Goes Faster When You Do It With A Friend

More seaweed hauling today, but this time Carolyn went with us....

Bend down and pick up some seaweed...

Stand back up straight and put it in the barrel...




Are you tired yet?  

Someone sure looks tired!

 On the way home we stopped in at the local brewery to collect some of their spent grain.

This stuff is GREAT for the garden, it's free, it's about a mile from my house, it's free, the ducks love it's free!!!

I'd say that's a pretty good load!

Thanks for going along Carolyn!


  1. She is a keeper - friends that love to help out and work hard, are very hard to find. You guys are gluttons for punishment.

  2. Hey Lori,
    You know they make pitchforks for that kind of work!

  3. Anytime!! It was my pleasure.
