Wordless Wednesday -- Sort of...

My other gardening friend and I took her sister's truck to the Nursery in the next town and got one scoop of potting soil for $20.00 that's a lot of bagged soil for almost $10.00 bucks a bag!

I just love getting a load of dirt, can't believe you can fill up a pickup for $20, my Mom and I did that last year and split it, it really goes a long way, but it's a lot of work, thank goodness for a good wheel barrow!

Thank you for your encouraging words. The Lord healed me from migraines one year, 5 months ago, after suffering from them for 18 years. I'll have to write a testomony of that healing someday.
I need that dirt for my new garden bed I'm gonna make. Must be sunny there today, its storming and raining here. Hugs, Rosemarie

We have been up to the same thing.
As soon as it drys up a bit we will start to plant.

That is a lot for $20. You will have fun potting up a lot of plants!

tina said...

Yes it is! Happy planting!

That's enough soil to keep you occupied for a long time. Super good price.

I need to do this. I have no topsoil to speak of. It would be a lot easier than working one little section at a time.

Happy Spring

Darla: It's good you could buy in bulk.

Marsha said...

I just love the shot of the dirt on the bumper & hitch...it must have been a full load. Great bargain!

Mildred said...

I am SO envious! Have fun!

Becca's Dirt said...

Wow what a good deal. The dirt looks like the good stuff. I know you have lots planned for this.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Just $20 for ALL of that???? Gads---that's a great deal. Wish we had a truck!!!! We pay MUCH more for our dirt!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Peggy said...

Looks like you got a bargain there, I hope you had willing helpers and wheelbarrows to take it off and put it where you need it.

From this pic it looks like good soil too.

Jill said...

ooooh I see a big flowering project coming on. My daughter could make great mud pies with all that dirt. LOL!

I always buy my dirt, mulch etc.. in bulk. Our city makes compost & mulch and sells it for around $15.00 a load. Very cost effective way when you have as many beds as I do. ;)

Dani said...

I sooo love the new header pick! Gorgeous!

Dennis said...

I like your Wordless Wednesday better than mine.

Oh to have a truck...I would go to the Compost Farm and get some great soil and compost for the garden! The soil looks good and the price is great! gail

Susie said...

That looks like some really nice, rich soil Darla. What a great buy!

flowergardengirl said...

I paid $350.00 for that much potting soil/garden soil at my former home summer before last (NC). I don't see how they can sell it so cheap. I'm green with envy. How is your back?

Frances said...

Hi Darla, there is nothing like a pickup truck for piles of mulch, soil, etc. The only thing better is a friend with such a truck willing to let you dirty it up with that precious cargo. Yum, it looks fabulous too. That is even more exciting than seeing it filled with plants. To some of us, anyway! :-)

Shellmo said...

Are you really building a sandbox and just not telling us?? LOL!! That's a lot of dirt! But great price!

Carla said...

This is heavenly! We have a place to do this nearby, just gotta get the hubs to empty his stuff out of the truck bed:)

(I'm drooling as I look these pictures)

Sue said...

What a great deal! Are you using that for pots?
