Just thought I would drop a line to say hi to everyone. I have not been here as regularly as I used to be due to all kinds of things. My business is doing well, but can always be better. My garden is so-so, my grandkids are fine. My hubby is fairly well these days despite all his health problems. My step dad is in hospice so a few prayers would be helpful..
I am so excited!! I got a new Soilsaver Compost Bin !! I have been wanting one for quite awhile and got a great deal at Sam's Club. About half price what I see at other places.This will really speed up my compost!!
Soilsaver Compost Bin was designed for composting in even the coldest of climates with special structural molding foam that insulates the pile from the cold.
Soilsaver is a charcoal black color, 28 inches wide, 28 inches in diameter and 32 inches high and holds up to 11.4 cubic feet of composting material when full.
When empty, Soil saver weighs 30 lbs, as it is made from 75% post-consumer recycled polyethylene with a weather resistant construction and UV stabilizers.
Soilsaver has two slide up doors and can even come with an optional base plate made from 14-gauge galvanized welded wire with 1 inch by 1 inch openings for aeration and drainage.
Soilsaver also comes with a unique self-watering feature to allow only enough rainwater in to moisten the composting pile, thereby reducing composting time.
Soilsaver comes with a lock down lid to prevent the entrance of unwanted varmints or curious children, a definite plus for urban areas.
With four inches thick of natural insulating structural foam molding, Soilsaver extends the composting throughout the long slumber of winter months.
It was a perfect day for working on the brush pile. I started early this morning and by this evening I had most of it done. Godness some of those branches has been piling up for over a year!! It stated out about a tall as our house and about 20 ft around. I have been working on it for awhile and now I can see the ground!!
Now I can tackle the other pruning that needs to be done and start another one!!
I am still working on that huge brush pile. One of these days I will get it down to a managealbe size and not have to burn each branch in the barrel. That pile was an accumulations of several stormes, ice storms, etc. Big branches, small ones,.. all kinds of things. The pile have gotten a stall as my house, out in the garden. Now I am working it down one branch at a time. I worked on it 4 hours today and I am so sore and cannot sleep tonight. You would think I would be sawing logs after all that!!
Still no hummers yet.. we are going to put out our feeders this week tho, just in case.
