25 TONS

Of what??  Mulch.
We're doing the "Back to Eden" garden, like we did in Trussville.  Last years "regular" garden was a big fail for us.  See backtoedenfilm.com if you'd like to learn more.
We are also putting it around the pool.  If there is enough left, the will be a second garden for the animals.   Their garden will grow things that we may not like, but animals do.
Everyone was excited and came to see what was in the big truck.
The trailer had a tarp style top, so we know how the mulch got into the trailer.
It was very interesting to see how 25 tons of mulch is taken out of an 18-wheeler.  
The man described it as a conveyor belt, when we were talking on the phone.  Actually, the floor is made up of steel beams, covered with sliding "fingers", that move about 9".
Hydraulics slide the fingers in and out, so the mulch comes creeping out, and the truck slowly moves forward.  And the shot below is of all the gear that makes it happen.
