[Comments] (6) The Moist Rich Aroma of Mother Earth: Before I left this morning, I asked Rachel if she would be home to unload compost when I got here with it. It was buy three, get one free at White Forest Nursery, so I went after work. She said maybe not, but she would unload it for me, just leave it in the car.

Bat guano and worm castings in the afternoon sun, how lovely. I did drag some of the bales out myself, as many as I could.

I planted everything I bought at the nursery except the two flats of wooly thyme--some herbs, various flowers. Also I planted the babies from J&P which have been taking up room on the kitchen counter. I pulled a few weeds. I figure if I can just get out there some every day, the yard and I will both be better for it.

Hey,.. I also wrote about moist earth today. There's an abundance of earthly blogs today!

Hearing all your gardening tales give me solace that I won't be a homeowner (with all the incumbent responsbilities) in Southern California anytime soon. It sounds so exhausting. There is an upside to renting.

gosh what a slacker your daughter is!!!

Not so. She came home and unloaded all the bales of compost.

The car still smells like bat guano though. Every time I have to haul something like this I regret selling the little red truck.

Poor Rach, I don't know why they pick on you.

That was actually me, satirizing those who pick on me. (We did ban the random person posting all those mean things on my blog...)
