Finally Got Wood Chips. How? Don’t Ask.

Giovanni spotted a house in the neighborhood with wood chips. We both stopped by to ask if we can have them. The stranger said, “sure.”  So on Sunday Craig and I made an attempt with the large green recycling bins. We filled each one up, and rolled them across Park to the garden. Here’s Craig rolling one. It looks easy, but it wasn’t. After three trips, I gave up. The heat and hunger kicked in.


Monday afternoon with 3 more helpers, we tried again. This time with success. Thanks to Vincenzo who happen to just pass by in his manual handy pickup truck, we made 3 trips with the last one being the most productive. We made two piles. One in the garden and one in the back. If you are coming to the garden, bring cardboard and/or old clothes for the pathways before we spread the wood chips.
