What's the next step then? Dirt. I need about 205 cubic feet of dirt to fill my beds! preferably dirt mixed with compost/manure/whatever. I also need a pick-up to haul it with. So today I will post my need on Craigslist, and hopefully have some dirt by the weekend. Which is good because my mom will be here this weekend to help me haul it!
Also this weekend is the Peach Festival. It should be a good time all around!
So have you ever thought about how much dirt that is? or how one would go about getting it? or how horrible the dirt is here in arizona? I am pretty concerned i'm going to have to buy 100 of those little bags at home depot which will cost upwards of $400 in order to be able to fill the whole thing with the type of dirt that might actually grow something.
"What about your compost?" you might ask me. Good question.
So this is last weekend's news paper shredding adventure.
|In a state perpetually on fire, citizen's sue over not being allow to|
use fireworks. Sigh.
See? people say there is no use for news paper any more! Surely i cant dry out my compost with the internet! thanks Arizona Daily Star!
And even after all of that, this week it is still soppy. So we put the same amount of newspaper in again yesterday. We'll see how it goes.
So i am in the market for some dirt. You know anyone?
