Making me very happy today….this pile of apple tree trimmings…..earlier this week I spied them out of my bedroom window and knowing my neighbour has a shredder knew the fate that beheld them….I intervened saving him the trouble and effort…over the fence they came and now into our garage to season and be ‘processed’ by the man of the house.
Which brings me onto the subject of being proactive and keeping your eyes peeled for gardening activity that may produce a by product unwanted by one but valued by another. I am not normally forward by find it easy when I know what I want is probably destined for landfill.
Last year a neighbour who has sadly passed away came to me enquiring if I wanted his apple wood trimmings…..he knew we had a wood burner and even knew what time I lit it as he could smell the wood smoke… after spending a year in our garage it was a dream to burn.
Even had some beautiful lichens attached.
