One thing I never thought I would be doing was picking up branches from the street and taking them home. But that’s just what I did yesterday.
I was rushing towards my car after a day at work when I noticed a branch. Well, hard not to see it, considering it was on the pavement in front of me. The wind has been blowing a lot of branches off trees lately – I’m getting small ones in the garden all the time.
Anyway, you may ask why I was doing a mini clear up in LS6. Especially as I already have a fair stack of wood at home.
So far, the hugel beds have contained a bit of wood but I realise that more is most definitely better when it comes to these matters. As the wood decomposed, it soaks up water which means plants need less watering. So, more wood more hydration for my plants….
Only about two weeks to go till the next opportunity to use the wood.
