Spreading Gravel ...


It was a cool day for working outside ...
using my trusty tractor ...
to take the gravel pile from the side of the house ...
down to the garden ...
and then raking out the rest on the driveway ...

It was easier using the tractor ... than using the wheelbarrow ...
from the house ... which I did at first ...
Had this part of the garden done by lunchtime ...
planned on finishing in the afternoon ...
 
I did have one stoppage in the afternoon ...
was working earlier out in the rain ...
with my rain gear on ... but then it turned into a torrential downpour ...
had to wait it out ...
it didn't last very long  ... so I was able to finish ... all done by 3:30 pm
spreading the gravel in the garden ... 
anywhere from 2-4 inches deep in spots to level it out ...
A big job done ... not much gravel was left ...
will use it to touch up any areas that need a little more ...
with this rain it should pack down quite nicely ...
Another job to stroke off the "to do list" ...
