In which I get dumped on (almost)

Today I got another load of "compost" from the local recycling company. They turn what goes in your green wheelie bins (compostables) into this finely shredded, composted material which makes a great composty mulch, and really improves the P. Garden dirt.

We got a load back in December - 2/3 of a truckload - and thought we'd never run out. Well we did run out, quite fast, and a quick email to Sanjay yieded 20 yards (a full load!) delivered to the garden today!

The good news is that unlike last time, it's drier (less eucalyptus smell) and I managed to direct traffic to get them to dump it at the top of the garden, somewhat out of the way. The bad news is it's in the middle of the dog area, but it could be a doggie playground until I get it moved. Happily we have Ron's wheelbarrow and Gary's big shovel to help us move it faster, unlike last time, so I'll make a dent in it at the weekend.

Naturally today it's about 94 degrees out, and I had to run home to supervise the dumping, shovel up spilled mulch, and run back to work at midday. So I am fried. But it was worth it.

  1. Looks like a playground for cats to me!

  2. It would be nice to have a cat or two in the garden, but in some ways I'm glad none of them attempt to brave the busy street!
