Excess Enthusiasm

1984. At age 38, I was still very much the young immortal, and could work all day long without getting tired. This picture shows a little of what I used to do with all that time and energy. I would shred bales of alfalfa hay in my electric shredder, and dump 5-gallon buckets of shredded hay evenly across the garden before tilling it in. I had a wonderful garden, that's for sure! These days, I just walk back and forth across the garden, crumbling the hay as I go. This is a lot easier and faster, and works just as well.
