It’s been a very emotional day today as a compost trench was dug earlier this morning. The reason was that over the last fortnight there’s been three sightings (while kitchen peelings were being deposited to our dalek type compost bin) of a very large rodent helping him/her self to the heap.It turns out it was getting in through the crudely cut flap at the front.
Today the bin was cleared out of it’s rotting vegetation and dug deep into a trench at the bottom of the garden which will benefit some squash/pumpkin plants in the forthcoming months. The plastic dalek bin will be sawn up next week and thrown into the recycling bin.
Big shout to our good mates Marc and Maz for standing by as emotional support and for holding the camera just in case said rodent showed his/her face and the footage of a grown man running up the garden in fear might get us all £250 on “You’ve been framed.” Needless to say no rodent was found and all nerves were left intact.Also today we just found some daft gardening-related pieces in the Steroid Abuse Spring Fayre fanzine from 2003 (seems like yesterday). Big shout to all involved and Lord Anthony B for the collaboration on the fanzine – We salute you all!
No salutations to the Forest Hill Super Rat though.
