Ordering the soil

EmptyBedsMark measured the beds.  They equal 80 cubit feet… whatever that means in metric I can hear someone asking me when I phone the soil company.  I just thanked Mark and decided to not look daft by asking what that was in English.

What a hard decision choosing soil is!  I took the advice of a professional gardener I have met who recommended a local supplier.

He came and looked at the raised beds and announced ‘you’ll need 4 tons.’

That was good enough for me.  £12 per ton and £30 deliver.

If I have too much, I’ll put it on the other borders.  You can’t have too much soil I decided.

When chatting to friends, all of a sudden four tons sounded way over the top.  All of their eye brows went up when I said how much I’d ordered.  But too late now it’s coming tomorrow!
