When you are given lemons...

Our lot is almost a third of an acre, all of which was covered in large gray gravel (think parking lot).  Quotes to remove the gravel ranged from $3,500-$5,000.  We moved the gravel ourselves to the front yard, and posted a sign that read "FREE GRAVEL". People arrived almost immediately to haul it away, and they continue to pull up daily.  The gravel is more than 50% gone!

A super nice couple from Canada were so appreciative of the free gravel and the lemons we "borrowed" from the unoccupied home next door that they baked us a homemade Lemon Meringue Pie!  It was delicious!
