BG had a great time helping. She even got to use her very own shovel, which she loved. She loved digging in the dirt with Daddy. We found a worm and she thought that was the greatest thing ever. We decided to let it live next to our tree in the dirt.
Helping Daddy dig up the "dirt". Our soil is really more like hardened clay. We mixed it up with Nutra-mulch to help the trees put in roots.
BG did a great job helping mix up the soil.

I didn't realize what hard work it is to plant a tree! Even though the basic steps are: Dig hole, Put in tree, Fill hole, it's not easy. Or maybe I am just horribly out of shape. Or maybe the local soil just really sucks. Whatever the reason, it was a workout for me and I was sore the next day.
We have been trying to get our garden cut out for a few weeks now but the weather and our schedule are not lining up. Hopefully we can get that done soon.
