Free mulch and more
I love free.
Yesterday I saw a marketplace ad for 36 bales of old mulch straw. The location turned out to be close and I need it for projects. So I set up a time to get it. Then he offered to deliver! Lets make my life easier.
The mulch arrived tonight, quite later but we unloaded it. Some will still be able to be used for bedding for chickens. As we were talking the man asked If I knew much about lavender and if would like some plants. (Well Yes!) They were overgrown at the house they just bought and he knew nothing about them.
As we talked we planned to swap plants and seeds. I will start him some asparagus plants and have some Italian garlic he can plant. I'll be going up this Thursday will shovel in hand to dig.
It was a good day!~ And best of all I have a new friend.
And tomorrow is another free clothing day at a local church. We have a large clothing business in town and it must be there way of writing off extra items.
