The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Cardboard mulching

using big stove box for mulching

We used up that big box I stole last week.

I like to take a minute and remove all the tape and labels.

Maybe I'll return to the scene of the crime like a typical criminal?

I don't think this will put you in the clinker, even if you do return to the scene of the crime!!!

You can't steal trash!!!! But, in this world we live in now you are a criminal for breaking the "code" it's not a law but a code among many hundreds of thousands that make you, and others Outlaws.

We need to circumvent these "recycling" places by creating Trading Posts with other "Outlaws".

Back in the "good old days" when I was growing up in Maine, we took what we could not use or repair to the town dump. You took whatever you wanted to get rid of and also had the chance to pick up something you needed that someone else has dumped there. It was a real recycling center!
