A PennDOT crew arrived today to start reshaping the bank below our vineyard. (Their backhoe had been parked in our field since before Christmas.) The timing was perfect: It was an unseasonably warm day, the ground was dry, and we had just finished roughing out the driveway and parking lot area.
They got half of the bank reshaped today – which totaled 12 dump truck loads of dirt, unloaded in our future parking lot. Jeff used the tractor to spread the dirt as much as possible between the loads and by evening the are looked completely different already.
