Maybe 5 years ago, when I first decided I wanted a Back to Eden garden, I signed up for 'Chip Drop', which is a free service that connects arborists with places to dump wood and woodchips. Haven't gotten a thing all this time.
Until yesterday. We got quite the drop off. For free. Of course our pal who drops woodchips off locally was just here, now we have a heck of a lot of wood chips. I'm thrilled. Kids are thrilled. I have a heck of a lot of work to do now and I don't mind a bit.
