It is amazing how much usable stuff we have been able to find for free!
I had put this in another post and it occurred to me that it bears repeating (or reminding) for us all. I have a friend who does lawn maintenance for people and he has to bag up the leaves and clippings each time. We have a deal worked out where I keep him in eggs and he keeps me in non sprayed or treated leaves and clippings. It’s a fine deal we have been enjoying for a couple of years now. It’s amazing what you can find that other people want to get rid of. My hubby followed a tree service truck around town one day and talked to the driver. We gave them permission to drop hardwood on a corner of our property and we have been blessed to be able to provide, from that chance meeting, firewood for several households and there’s still a huge pile. We got a couple of loads of wood chips the same way. The drivers were happy to have a local dump site and we’re thrilled to get free, the things we use extensively around the farm. I wanted to get the local electric service company to dump their chips here but after talking with them, realized that they are spraying their power lines with herbicides so I can’t use that. Have a great season!
