My Empire of Dirt
It looks like giant mole came burrowing under the highline yesterday. On my way down the road yesterday to the kids to school this guy pulls up beside my truck and waves for me to roll down the window. He works for Texas Drainage and they are cutting out the ditches (never under estimate the importance of a good drainage ditch) and he wants to know if I need any dirt can they dump some on our property. I didn't realize how much "some" dirt means. When I came home for lunch they told me that they had dropped of one load, this load. If I hadn't come home they would have dropped off another four or five. It will take me quite a bit a time to move all this. Most will be used to fill they road, although it would be a good idea to mix in some gravel. The rest I guess we will use as a base for our raised beds.
