Well, as I was working on getting today’s orders out, I received a phone call from someone from a tree place. HUH? She said I signed up a year ago to get mulch and they only deliver when in the neighborhood and they are. Would I like it?
Hmmm, sure I said. I moved my car and found out in 20 minutes they didn’t mean SOME they meant a DUMP TRUCK FULL. Is that a tonne? So he dumped half of it on the street. Mind you, I’m on a cul-de-sac, the end of the road. The end of the street IS my house.
He wanted me to take all of it so it wouldn’t go to the dump, but really, my yard is small. I’m the house at the end of the street, which means my backyard is long, not deep and my front yard is postage stamp size. Everything in my yard is edible or medicinal, btw.
So I had him dump a little more, covering the front yard don’t cha know…and off he went. As soon as i upload the vid, i’ll post it here. [yes i know i’m not capping the i, i’m tired].
This weekend my helper is coming to help with the biz end of things. And now there’s this. Soooo, i’m out there in 88F heat, with a sunhat and drinking lotsa water, shoveling pine mulch in a wheelbarrow and dumping it on the yard. I’ve done three.
I wonder if it can be distilled? I wonder how much essential oil I would get out of it? Or should I distill it for hydrosol? I bet the hydrosol would make a great cleaner!
I’m going back out to do some more. Kinda sad the people in my neighborhood see me doing this and neither the ones on the right or the left offer to help. But just think…I’m sure this will help me take weight off! At the very least, sleep like a rock tonite!
be forewarned, I yell OK VERY Loudly toward the end of this vid.
