The Aftermath of the Pig Farm
On Sunday I posted on my first 10 miler, following Umstead 3 weeks ago. I did my beloved Pig Farm route. I am redoing some more flower beds, so I gathered some limestone rocks from the edges of the fields and went back later with the truck to harvest them and bring them home.
All in all, a good day's work, and I love killing 2 birds with 1 stone: running and landscaping.
A knowledgeable friend tells me that the local geological formation, the Chambersburg Limestone, weighs in at about 166 lbs per cubic foot, so I moved me some weight.
