This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Homesteading. (Note that this BB is part of a three-part choose your own adventure list BB called Big List. You must complete three Badge Bits in the Big List.)
In this Badge Bit, you will find and clean up things that somehow "went missing" the rest of the year.

After the snow has melted and before the grasses have started to grow, fill a pickup bed with stuff that somehow “went missing” the rest of the year:
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide pictures or a short (less than two minutes) video depicting the following:
The land you're tending, after the snow has melted and before the grasses have started to grow
Well do I have a spring cleaning for you. I have not spring cleaned in awhile. Four years or so. I do urban permaculture because I live in the middle of a city. Luckily I'm in a fairly natural part with fields and greenways and oh yeah, abandoned and overgrown areas abutting my land. That leads to strange things like items being moved from where they were. Things being dumped. And also, my own laziness and despair as I quite simply gave up for a couple years, leaving tools and materials out to rot.
So I finally decided to do something about it. Pickup truck bed? Pffft. I got a 15 ton dumpster.
(One caveat, which is that there is grass here 365 days a year, so it would be impossible for me to comply unless I torched the ground and then snapped a picture before the grasses grew back. Assuming that's what neither of us wants, allow me to regale you with pictures.)
