Yay! Today we visited Sonoma Compost for the first time.
Basically it is at the dump/landfill site…very interesting on the top of a hill with a beautiful view of cows grazing down below.
Ignorance is bliss…I had no concept of how much a cubic yard of compost was…BTW…I do now!
So I asked the lovely lady inside for a cubic yard …she smiled and said why don’t you start with a half yard and come see me after you have bagged that and let me know if you want more….Okey dokey..We went and found Julian , the man driving the big scooper truck and asked him for 1/2 a cubic yard of Organic Hi-Test Compost.
He came and dumped it out for us…
And I put Mr. Benjamin to work…:-)
I had 28 hefty bags…there were some very nice folks next to us scooping away as well. I think the lady was amazed I was crazy enough to be out there doing this on my own…let alone with a 3 year old. She gave me some of here extra bags when they left.
Which I ended up using all but one. The universe is there to help me every step of the way!
Ben pooped out pretty early on. I scooped for an hour and a half. When I returned to the office to pay..She said oh my I forgot you were even here.
It was a joy to scoop that beautiful compost. My car was completely full. I paid $10.28. Amazing!
So my garden days are either working in the garden or collecting supplies. This was as far as I got the compost bags.
I did manage to go out to the farm store and get another bale of straw. Tomorrow will be introducing compost to straw! We might actually have something that resembles a garden. Check back!
I am sore but my garden is taking me on a beautiful journey and I am loving every moment!
Peace and Beautiful Light to you…
