I found this junk computer-generated comment on an old post
it said.......... I should assert barely that its astounding! The blog is informational also always fabricate amazing entitys
Er?.............. No Idea - I just deleted.
The problem with making really good compost.............is that I'm too lazy and it's too much like hard work to do it properly AND with lots of grass to cut there are too many grass cuttings. I've been mowing down the meadow footpath without the box on the ride-on mower, just a bit less to tip out but even so I need three big heaps on the meadow to empty all the summer grass cuttings and several other small bins for all the garden/kitchen and small mower grass. Imagine how difficult it would be to turn and aerate all that!
Anyway, last week one of the hexagonal compost bins was full of new stuff and the other still had some old semi-decent compost in the bottom so early one morning before it got too hot I emptied all the good stuff into the wheelbarrow and then pondered on where to put it as my garden is still more or less full of plants. Eventually I used it to fill two huge pots and topped them up with multi purpose and they will become extra strawberry planters for the plants that have been in smaller pots since I got them in that "Bargain Offer" in the spring. Back in February the strawberry bed was looking sad and I thought the new plants would be needed there but this years summer weather has been perfect for strawberries and the two year old plants are still looking good and have grown and multiplied.
Car booting over Bank Holiday weekend didn't cost me much. I just found these.....a Summer Chintz bowl, an engine and trucks to add to the Brio box, one of the Cars vehicles for Jacob's next visit plus a wooden cooker/sink unit + a bag of play food etc ready for Willows 2nd birthday. (Gone into the loft at their house already, forgot to photograph it after I cleaned it up)
To make up for these purchases......out to a charity shop has gone a pyrex pie plate that I've not used for ages, and 3 cookery books ditto.
As well as the sweetcorn (for better or worse) this week I've also........ put peppers in the freezer, pumped up the wheelbarrow tyre in the hope that it hasn't got a puncture, swam and had a visit from Son, DiL and Willow one day and Youngest, her OH and Florence on another day.
Also enjoyed the surprise of a few bowls of late summer raspberries. There's just one cane of yellow
When I dropped some bits into the Oxfam shop I noticed they were running Secondhand September, looked it up when I got home..........This is an easy-peasy pledge for me............No new clothes in September, well that's no problem! It would be a bit like me getting sponsored for the "Go sober for October"! ............simple!
This week I'm grateful for................
The unexpected raspberries
Lovely library books
The fun of searching car boot sales
Have a lovely weekend folks.
