The Cart That Rocks

Working all morning in the yard pulling weeds, setting up the soaker hose and dividing plants, I then ran through with the vacuum and did one load of laundry while eating lunch.  Now for the task at hand.

Since the Pres cannot do anything strenuous, I grabbed the shovel and began digging up the rocks that Connecticut is known for. They (the rocks) seem to work their way to the surface of the yard each year so in the Spring, we begin extracting them.   A good friend recently told me that he believes that there are "Mommy rocks, Daddy rocks and Baby rocks"...LOL...but if that is true we have generations that live here.  

However, by the time I got to the task of rock digging I needed help.  Already pooped , I decided to use the golf cart to haul them rather than carrying them to and fro.





My other "helpers" sat close by and waited as I loaded each freshly dug specimen into the back of the cart.

There they sat, watching me as if to say, "What is she going to do with all those things?"

"We dig and get in trouble.  She digs and it's a big deal!"






Climbing back into the cart and stepping on the accelerator, I headed toward the garden beds in back as Copper on my left and Moon on the right trotted along side as always.















So, to the cart that rocks, my gloves are off!

I felt relief when I got to the end of the story because in my head you were loading those heavy rocks in a CART which to me is like a wagon but you push or pull it. that is is a motor driven one is a good thing. if i picked up just one of those rocks, i would be in bed for 2 days.

What a slick deal and so much better than hauling them one by one or in a wheel barrow!

Love that golf cart! Well the dog photos always top everything but love your work horse as my hubby calls it, I don't always share my tractor and wagon for it, hehehe so he bought a golf cart to tool around our grounds. We have a pull down (extra backseat) but it has a nice metal backing for loads like that!

Ann Thompson said...

I'm thinking the same as Ginny because I know after all that digging and picking up those rocks I would be one hurtin puppy

Handy cart you've got. Those rocks are huge. Your helpers are adorable and I'm sure give you moral support.

Weren't you the one who told us about your back situation? How do you think lifting these huge stones will help that? Girl, take care of yourself! Let Nature take care of itself! (Friendly Advice Only) Linda@Wetcreek Blog

You're not kidding...those are some pretty good sized rocks. You could sell them here. We have no rocks in the dirt. I had to buy them to use as an edging. I bought $80 worth. You probably have a good $40s worth of rocks there.
