Boys and their toys! Roy has been so happy and content working in the garden of late, because he bought himself a whole lot of fancy toys. A strimmer, which cut our straggly bushes in no time at all, and a shredder to reduce all those branches to shreds for our compost heap.
Composting: turning useless shreds and scraps into rich, black garden soil is one of my favourite things–garden magic!!
Sadly, Roy has never been in favour of kitchen composting, so the few times we do it, the food gets rotten and smelly, and no one can bear touching it. We do compost leaves and twigs though, and enjoy the rich, crumbly garden soil
Now that we are whole lot less busy and more relaxed, we are going to have another try at kitchen composting. It’s a real win-win thing–using waste to create rich soil, which will provide a bumper crop of vegetables and herbs, and the waste from these is returned to create fresh rich soil in the circle of life God designed.
We haven’t planted any veggies this year, but we do have a greenhouse, so it is not too late.
