Path now fully woodchipped

The woodchipping of the path (did I just make up a word?) began with me and a garbage bag. It was a task that seemed pretty daunting because trekking from the distant pile to the path was a slow process and I really didn’t make much progress.

It got a bit better when some of the folks at the farm used a farm truck to move some of the chips closer to the final destination and I was able to move a few more into the labyrinth.  But it was still slow going.

Now the task has been completed, thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers — crossfit folks who demonstrated functional fitness by doing some hard work in the pouring rain! With the perfect truck (and it took what looked like about 10 truckloads), a ramping system for the wheelbarrow and lots of dedicated sweat equity, these folks cheerfully worked all day till the task was done.

Deryk and I are feeling pretty grateful!
