Compost

This afternoon for about three hours Pat was mowing the back lawn at his speed. It's not a big back lawn, but it still took him ages.

Still needs to finish the lawn off tomorrow, as he ran out of breath.

Seeing as I had fresh green lawn and weeds to compost, I joined Pat out the back, emptying the tumbler into the no dig garden and gave the girls a wheel barrow of green lawn/weed cuttings.





Ducks and bantams love compost day as this means lots of goodies to eat and fresh damp soil to scratch round in.




I had been saving paper and shredding it for the girl's next boxes.



The old paper from the nest box was put into the tumbler along with the compost collected and stored in the black compost bin. Plus more weeds and lawn clippings added and then given a good tumble to mix it up.

Until next time....hoo roo
