So this house was built in the late 1800′s, and I can tell the soil in the front lawn is going to need a lot of help. Although I have the sad beginnings of a compost pile, it’s nowhere near a usable state to incorporate it in the garden. And I definitely don’t want to drop a lot of money on compost because…well…it’s garbage. So, it’s perfect timing that the Saint Paul compost sites opened yesterday. This is awesome news because, if you’re a resident of Ramsey County, you can stop by and pick up free compost. They tend to run out early in the springtime, so you want to make it over to one of the locations as soon as you can. Through November you can drop off your compost-ables, too.
Of course I made it down to the one by my house and loaded up a bin of delicious goodness, and there was already a decent dent in the hill. I might go back in the next couple days for one more bin.
