Rather than the usual holiday barbeque, the girl and I thought it would be more fun to dig up over a half ton of clay from our backyard garden. To make it even more exciting, we did it on the hottest day of the three day weekend. Because nothing says fun in sun like digging and hauling around heavy bags.
Next step will be creating new retaining walls and putting in some better soil and mulch. It's kind of neat looking now, though, because it's all dug up except for this brick path down the center. Looks a bit like an archeological dig.
