You know someone might take away that nasty shale - for free, if you advertised it. Apparently, some people really like it. (And don't be calling me, because I already shoveled a few yards of "rock effects" into the back alley!)

Do you ever drive past the Burnco yards? They still have loads of that fancy white rock for sale.

Thanks Paula. I did think of that, and if it was mostly shale, I would have tried. But there is a lot of dirt and spruce needles mixed in, so I can't see how anyone would want it. I suppose I could try with the rest of it in spring, as there will be more to dig up then...
I have memories of white rock in our garden growing up! It makes great chalk on a black driveway!
