Mr B keeps coming up with ways to use that big orange dirt mover he acquired. It’s kind of become his latest obsession.
Most recently, he used it to dig up the end of the driveway and replace the drainage culvert that connects the ditch from one side to the other. After he did that, he started digging at the ditch and removing the front fence.
He then proceeded to round up all of the grass and weeds he cut down in the ditch, and he put them in the compost heap.
I added the cabbage leaves that I tore off the outside of the cabbages I harvested late last week. The compost heap just continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Pretty soon, we’re gong to have to start a second one in a new location so that this one can finish the process of becoming the stuff we put in the dirt when we plant things, but I refuse to start a new compost pile until they build me some way to contain it so that the chickens and raccoons and shit don’t scatter it to the four corners of the earth.
final note: that compost heap smells weird.
