I amuse myself. I do.
Lincoln has cheap cheap cheap (free) compost they make themselves! All you have to do is go to the dump and pick it up--first come first served. What flash this has. The dump. http://www.lincoln.ne.gov/city/pworks/waste/sldwaste/recycle/orgwaste/compost/lingro/index.htm
And I've decided, with my large investment of plants, better late than never to get a soil test. UNL ag has a lab and the test, for $15, is fairly comprehensive. I'm turning into such a dorky nerd.
Now, will I also spend money to have my clay-based lawn aerated and top dressed? When will I next pee? Does anyone care? Why are you reading this?
I didn't look at your site for free compost cause I didn't care. lol
Steal, erm...borrow a dump truck for a weekend.
I'm lucky to have a pile of horse manure/bedding large enough to bury your house that I can loot. All I have to do is tunnel to the core for the good composted stuff.
Lucky enough? Is it lucky? Really? You go right ahead and tunnel to the good stuff--go nutz.... :)
This post made me laugh: all of my degrees are entire, or partially from soil science/chemistry departments, and I've never (ever) done a soil test on my own garden soil! I should be ashamed...
(And oh, by the way, I'm reading this because I have more stuff to read/edit than I can even ponder, and I am procrastinating).
Pam--Well, yes, you should. My lord. Actually, if things are working for you, do you need a soil test? I suppose I'm partly doing it out of curiosity, partly out of some idea that all these folks who tell me if I add what needs to be added, my plants will grow with far more ease and zest. We'll see. (And I got MY papers read and graded--now I just have to come up with something to teach on Tuesday. Sometime, the best days are those I fly by the seat of my pants.)
As a matter of fact, I was reading this because I want to know when you will pee! Ha!
Lisa--7:30am, 1pm, 3pm, 5:52pm, 9:08pm, 11:30pm.
