Turning Dirt!

We started turning dirt over at the end of last week. It was no great surprise that the dirt was filled with rocks. Our farm site used to have housing on it that was demolished a few years back. They tore down the housing and just filled in the gaps with soil and grew grass on top. Over the past few days, we've removed bricks, pipes, stones and chunks of sidewalk.

Don Nelson using the middle buster to break up the dirt.

Pay Lay "the workhorse" uses her shirt to scoop up rocks.

Amina takes a break to take it all in.

Good Lookin' dirt.
