My 4 year old daughter wants a garden this year so my hubby and I framed in an area for her. Now we need some topsoil (aka dirt). Does anyone have any that they want to get rid of? We have access to shovels and a trailer to haul it. I rather do this than go spend money on buying bags of it. Please PM me if you have any information.
Thanks!

Thanks anyways. Guess I'll have to scrounge up some money and buy her the soil that she needs. Oh well. Maybe some other time!

AR...I don't think I've EVER seen good clean topsoil for free...the good stuff always has a price...even for cute 4 year olds.

There are plenty of places to purchase topsoil. The menonites usually have nice stuff. I forget the name of the place.

They are so expensive though. We bought a few bags and mixed it in with the other dirt. It'll have to do for now I guess. Wish it would stop getting so cool/cold at night so I can plant things. Ugh!

Yes HP that's it. Thanks. Actually they aren't very expensive. I bought a whole truckload last year pretty inexpensively.

Exactly...their prices are pretty competitive and I liked the people I dealt with there.
