I vow every Monday to start the morning by reading a book but it rarely happens. Something always seems to get in the way. Today, was different and I luxuriated in the peacefulness of my latest tome without a shadow of guilt.
This, I think, is what enabled me to be so productive with the rest of the day and tick many jobs of my list. One of these was to try out the stick
that came with the Green Johanna. The idea is that it helps aerate the contents of the bin. In other words, I was able to turn the contents without having to unload them and then put them back in.
The job was actually easier than I’d expected, although with the contents settling afterwards, it did occur to me that there might now be fewer pockets of air in there than there had been before I started. Still, with stick in hand, I thought I would give the dalek a go as well. Mm, not quite as easy, no doubt because the contents were in bigger pieces. At the same time, this heap had already reduced a bit, too, so there is plenty of room for more fodder.
With this in mind, I decided it was time to plant out the spring bulbs I’d bought during the half term holidays. This garden is looking pretty tatty right now but I’m excited to see the displays next year.
