From upstairs, I hear a rumble down the driveway. Our compost is here, the last load of Purple Cow for the year. Although we’re heading into the lean season of winter, it still pays to invest in soil. I know I’ve said it before, but this stuff is solid gold, the foundation of our no-till practices (until we can successfully make our own, maybe 2022 will be the year). With this material, we’ll build more beds to plant fall greens and radishes. No doubt Rufus will be putting in some time on the skid steer over the next few days. It’s just sitting there burning a hole in his pocket (and the lawn) until he forms it into productive garden beds. Giddy up Skiddy!
