The Compost has landed!‏

Filed under: Uncategorized — by west104garden @ 9:18 pm

We lucked out!

It was a relatively hassle-free delivery, with the alternate side car-parkers cooperating.

The compost is rich, dark and delicious. And there is LOTS of it, we didn’t take the full truck load because it was just too much.

Fortunately the port-a-potty has been taken for the season, so we don’t have to worry that we are blocking it with our new mountain.

Please be careful as you pull the tarp away to grab your share. We used the tarp that was used when the fence was painted silver.

Therefore on the one side of the tarp there are lots of silver particles that shake off as you move it. This will contaminate the soil, PLEASE do your best to handle it delicately.

If anyone has a fresh / spray paint-free tarp that they can offer as an alternative to the one we used, please be generous and share it 🙂


P.S. two issues:

1. If anyone knows the “generous” landscaper that keeps dropping off the white and HEAVY bags of bad soil for our use, please ask him to stop.
These bags are inhibiting our ability to open the delivery gate.

2. Tree guards are not yet installed and this is a good thing because the dump truck would not have been able to access the delivery gate.

Do we want to consider not installing this guard due to the likelihood that it will prevent future deliveries?
