Lately I've been building up a supply of the mulch in my trailer. It's so much more efficient and satisfying to be able to have a full trailer load of mulch to apply to potholes and muddy areas, rather than trying to do it one bag at a time. It takes me about ten minutes of chipping and shredding to produce a single bag, which doesn't go as far as you would hope.
I loaded up the trailer as full as possible, and still had more wood, so I also topped up the bucket on the front end loader before heading home.
It was comforting to once again be able to split this pile, practicing my kiai to great effect. Kenny even got into the act, yelling back to me after each log was struck. It felt a bit like a gospel call and answer session.
