Wood chip

Unexpected knock at the door,  Simon is working in the next village and needs somewhere to get rid of his 'rubbish'.  The largest quantity of chipped wood we've ever seen come out of the back of this truck.  Will not take that long to shift once the weather improves and I'm outside more often.

  1. Wow, that's a heck of a lot of wood chippings! What are you going to do with it all?

    1. Hi Eunice, I use it to mulch all the soil. With the generous quantities Simon is currently supplying I can put down layer a 4" to 6" thick. When it rots away (2 years or so) it adds to the soil quality, and until then it suppresses weeds, retains moisture in summer, provides an all-the-micro-bugs-you-can-eat buffet for birds. It's absolutely marvellous stuff!

    1. You're right, but it's a lot of garden to get round!

    1. It's only 'work' if you don't want to do it. For me, once the weather is right and I get into the garden, (nearly) everything I do is a moving meditation, and it's lovely 🙂

    1. Everyone benefits, Simon gets to dump his "rubbish" and I pay him for the privilege. This way the chip costs a bare fraction of the price of buying bags in a garden centre - it's the only way I can possibly afford to use it the way we do.

Sometimes it is the only way I know I am not talking to myself . . . 😊
