A Little Less Alone

There's a new blog out there, started by mormon environmentalists. It's much too new to know what I think of it yet, but already I feel a little less alone.

Feeling Chipper

On Friday afternoon, the UPS guy brought this

Which I used to turn this

into this.

I foresee much improved levels of hummus in my garden soil. 
I can practically hear the worms salivating. 

My new toy is a Greenworks 15 amp electric chipper, and it does a fine job converting fruit tree prunings (of which I have large volumes over the course of a year) into respectable mulch without hurting my eardrums or triggering my asthma. Anything too big for this little baby is just about the right size for the pizza oven. 

Transforming waste into resources and cleaning up the back yard at the same time. Possibly the best fun I had all week.
