Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
After a few days with the weight up over the stone boundary again, its gone down. Yesterday's walk felt as though I was lugging around a load more extra than I actually was, so I'm drinking lots of dandelion coffee in the hopes of losing water. Today's led walk was much longer, but not so dragging until the end.
I had two compost bins delivered - I don't really need two at the moment as I already have one, but the second one was half price, so i thought I might as well get one now.
I had to move and empty the old cold water tank which will one day be sunk as a reservoir to make the space for the first one, next to the old one. Into it went a load of weeds that have been waiting for a home, a box full of shredded paper (isn't it odd how much room a small stack of bank statements takes when shredded?), the slurry out of the tank (rotted down comfrey) and various other untidy stuff. There will be more when I start work properly on the garden.
Into the second went a bag of last years compost and some netting and plastic trellis, to keep them out of sight. The garden looks much better now.
Sadly, I found a bloated frog or toad in the water. I can't imagne how it got in, as the sides of the tank are two foot high. On the offchance that it is in fact not dead, but hibernating, I tucked it under the fence behind a board which came from around the compost which I put in the bin.
