September Green Log

26 Sept: Water butts all installed – still not a drop of rain yet to test them out but we can’t imagine this is a long term worry.

24 Sept: Shaun, our lovely Parwich builder, is coming on Saturday to install several water butts which will make watering all our pots easier. Since we ordered them I don’t think we’ve had a drop of rain but that cannot be a permanent anxiety…

19 Sept: It is pleasing to be able to discard fat, bones, and stale bread crusts (hope the Parwich ducks are receiving enough crusts from elsewhere). The mound of food waste is growing with no obvious signs of self-digesting but we hope that is happening silently and unseen under the heap.

5 Sept: We are becoming increasingly impressed. We’re absolutely determined not to become green bores or even bullies, but have been delighted to see that most of our guests are as intrigued as we are by the whole process and very keen to use it.
