There are lots of worms at the bottom of our garden. We also have Darleks.
Today we checked out what the D & D Partnership had yielded – take a look at this beautiful stuff…
Three years in the making… and look at it now! It is muck of great beauty. Compost. The word even smells earthy.
We got D & D from our local council three years ago. They cost a (subsidised) £9 each. Since taking up residence they have been fed all kinds of crap. Teabags, Pet hair, food waste, rotting windfall,garden waste,cardboard (ripped up) – it’s all been chucked in on an almost daily basis. With the odd Ponk with a pitchfork every now and again.
And now, three years later (it doesn’t have to take three years by the way, it’s just that we’d been a bit lazy and had left it that long) we have been rewarded with this rich beautiful stuff. Doncha just love that whole Circle of Life thing you get on the go with composting? Grow Eat Compost Grow Grow Eat Compost Grow … love it. Just as it should be. Very satisfying. The stuff has Happy-inducing powers.
I’ll be using it to pot up and plant over the next few days.

It’s been a blessed relief to get back into the garden after a long and very snowy winter.
Things are starting to grow.
The air hangs heavy with promise. I feel excited.
