As there is no tip open to take the garden waste away I now have to process it by hand. I am using secateurs to snip the leaves off and chop the thin bits of stick into the bin. Giving it a good kick every so often to make it all sift down and leave no gaps. Or at least that is the idea. There is no recycling in this area of Scotland. I know, shock horror. I normal separate all of my waste and take it to the tip and dump it into the right bins. At present there is now where to take it, so it is slowly mounting up in the shed. It does mean though that I can throw garden waste into the general waste bins (right or wrong this is the only option at present as we do not wish to burn it and put any more pressure on the emergency services if we cant keep it under control...).
Snip snip snip, kick kick kick. The dogs are loving it and are running back and forth with their toys as this is all great fun to them. It is managing to be sunny at present, there is as always, wind. lol
There is some more chopped wood to move and we have some wood left over to make some raised beds, although we cant leave the property I feel I am at least being a bit productive.
We need to do some shopping tomorrow, some for us and some for my 80+ year old FIL. Wish me luck.
