Sunday 8/16/09 - after a trip to Pam's horse farm to get some wonderfully aged manure mulch, have a 3-wheelbarrow pile of it. It looks very small! Still mowing the garden plot of the tall grass there, and saving the bagged clippings in a pile. This is growing in a satisfying way, and turning brown in a satisfying way, and collapsing in a satisfying way. Found some ancient hay in the wheeled cart in the (unused) chicken house and threw that in the pile, too. The bottom of it is a very satisfying black.
