With a day of rest after finishing the chicken coop (or so we thought – wait til tomorrow’s post), it was back to ‘regular’ yard duties at the new house. That includes admiring the progressing fall colours and working on rotting my sod. So far I’ve layed out a plot ~12’x12′. I wet the grass, laid down cardboard and covered them several inches deep with ‘junk’: chopped up greens and the dirt and decomposing matter in the compost pile I’ve inherited. On top of that I laid burlap bags from the local coffee house (Thank you C&P!). As fall progresses and the leaves fall I’ll add those under the burlap and hope the combined efforts result in compost by spring!
