Blue Bin Empty


All the time spent knee deep in * is showing progress. A while ago I managed to use up enough rotted manure to empty the green bin and less than two weeks later, I’ve now emptied the blue bin.

We finally have both bins back, but that does still leave:

  1. The tall sack
  2. A planter
  3. A trug
  4. A couple of buckets
  5. That which we didn’t decant from the original sack

To be honest all that together would easily fill another bin’s worth (and probably more). No doubt I’ll be able to use up some more in the borders but I think I’ll keep what’s in the tall sack for a later time.

Dealing with all the manure and a full time job is hard work and I’ll be very glad to see the back of this little mulching project.

I'm Sunil Patel, this is me. I created the Garden at 13 Broom Acres and I open it to visitors. I also bake and write blog posts giving a "behind the scenes" look into what it's like to maintain such a garden.

Visit the blog, then come and visit the garden. We can have a good sit-down, a jolly chinwag and a relaxing cup of tea with a sinfully generous slice of home made cake.

You need to compile the document through BibTex and LaTeX a few times each time you make an update. One isn’t enough to pick up the changes.
