Yesterday I decided to pick up trash along a rather junky section of road. A guy pulled off and thanked me, which has never happened before. I am considering doing an “art” thingy along this stretch using cigarette boxes and a couple pieces of bamboo from up the road, just a simple shape. On the same road someone dumped a pack of newspapers, and that might make a suitable anchor. Drill a couple of holes, stick the bamboo in and add the boxes. Not sure what shape yet.

Also this spring I want to try to use fabric scraps as weed suppression. I already have a fair amount of scrap in the compost pile (cut in small pieces and larger chunks to test the difference), but adding all scrap would be overloading it. This will be done with natural fabrics only.

      It doesn’t take much. The most important thing (I think) is having enough cover material–grass, leaves, straw, pine needles, i.e. something high in carbon. That balances out with food scraps. Without cover you just have a bunch of rotting food which can look kinda gross and is more likely to attract animals.
