Today we should be getting some dirt delivered to our house for the garden. Shame on me for taking the advice/experience of the person on the phone when ordering, I was being lazy but finally did the calculations myself and will be ending up with right around 50% more dirt than I’m going to need. Greaaat.
I know I have a few other places in the yard I could use some of the extra, but there will surely be a decent amount left.
So, anyone in Springfield want some topsoil? If not I may just tell them to keep some of what I’ve paid for – an idiot tax of sorts.

Green View Nursery just called, he’s on his way with the delivery.
I have been wanting to put in a dirt bike racing track in our basement, if there is enough.
Oooh, excellent idea. Max will have a blast!
I’ll set some aside for you.
Got a decent amount done in 45 minutes over lunch: http://gallery.ejinnovations.com/main.php/v/Random/Garden/
I’ll take any extra off of your hands.
Either that or add another 2×6 to raise your garden som more. It can’t be too deep.
I’ll probably take you up on the offer to take some/all of the extra, we’ll see how much I end up with after a couple side-projects and keeping a little mound in the back yard for reserves.
I’m going to be buying rock for around the garden, maybe I’ll buy twice of what I need for it, too.
Tell me you didn’t pay for dirt delivery? Don’t you have a gullible friend with a pickup that would haul it for you ?
I did and I do, but said truck was full of landscaping rock and couldn’t quite support an extra 3 cubic yards of topsoil 🙂
