Got my mulch today

They came today and delivered a tractor and trailer load of mulch. I took the picture with my phone so the quality is not good but the pile is bigger than it looks. I guess I better to get ready, I've got a lot of mulching to do. I'll get this pile about half gone and I'll order another. Does anybody else buy there mulch in bulk.

I would gladly trade some of this warm weather for some snow It was almost 70 here yesterday But it is cooling down today though but no snow.
I've got all of my annual contracts to do.

I'm guessing that's around 40 yards. We have gotten 100 yards delivered in one load before.

Moving mulch with a loader bucket takes forever. I built this extension and it makes the job go a little faster, It just about triples the size of scoop I can grab.
