Some lucky clay arrives.

Some lucky clay arrives.

On the way home yesterday evening i noticed digging going on in a garden only about 10 min from where i live.I asked about the top soil and where it was going.When told it was to be dumped,that was all i needed to hear. I asked the driver if i could have the load of clay,the answer was,no problem.Arrived just before 8.30 last night and for the next few hours i cleared the entry.Gardening was a winner with some lovely clay,an free to leave it even nicer again.

That looks like good soil. I hope there aren't too many weeds in it. There don't seem to be from that photo.

You're great for picking up things John, from plastic buckets to guttering to a coldframe. I'd say you could have a whole new garden from what you've collected and find a good use for anything. Its good looking top soil. Well spotted.

Thanks Hoey,i needed plenty of luck with the wheeling of it.

Thanks Fran.Spotted it just at the right time.

Thanks Liga.Normally it would take about 15 minutes to rake,fill,etc for one tub.This evening i done some of them in quarter of the time with the help of good clay.

Thanks Liam.My older brother called in today for a quick visit and mentioned he heard i got good clay.I showed the load of clay to him and amazed he was,i managed to be so lucky to get such a great help for the vegetable garden.

Lucky to get such good soil as it's hard to find always good to have a plentiful supply  stockpiled.
