…”he” turns straw and leaves into “gold”…brown gold that is!
This is my Craftsman chipper/shredder that my husband brought home for me last year. It came with a bag attached on the side where you see the white tube. It was about the size of a lawn mower bag and caught the leaves as they were shredded. Nice, but slow going for the amount of leaves that I need for my “lasagna gardening”. So my wonderful husband built me a box to hold a “Keen-size” load of leaves! Rumplestiltskin turned this
Now I can shred and shred and shred and then move the box and shred some more! This has become one of my favorite pieces of gardening equipment! Any garden needs mulch, but the lasagna gardening method uses ALOT of shredded leaves, straw and such. I am turning my raised beds into lasagna garden beds and building new beds lasagna style, so Rumpy will be getting quite a work out!
Today was the first day that I have worked in the garden. I am sore and tired, but it was worth it! :) Tomorrow I plan to post my first lasagna garden “recipe” and pictures!
P.S. I found two new places to meet folks:
