Yesterday, when we were at Old Sleningford Farm for the volunteer workday we were asked if we would like to take away a compost bin that was no longer needed. Two of us said yes and happily took them down the hill to our cars.
Then came another one of those push push push moments with nothing happening. I therefore concluded that the bin was just too big for the boot of my car. Oh well, nothing ventured nothing gained.
However, it turned out that once the back seats had been put down properly there was in fact the room for a rather large plastic bin to go neatly into that space. And now it is sitting neatly in the back garden waiting to be filled up.
I had originally had the idea of doing that job today. But it snowed – clearly not very much! – and it blowed this morning, so I decided to leave emptying the old compost bin (which has now torn along the seam) into it until a more inviting day. So much for spring 😉
