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

Hunting horse manure

truck loaded with 5 gallon buckets and scrap cardboard

We put off collecting the rest of our neighbor's scrap cardboard all Winter and part of the Spring in hopes of things drying out a bit.

It finally felt dry enough yesterday, which is a good thing because the new owners start moving in next month, and our agreement was to get it out of there before that happens.

We're going to miss trading eggs for manure, but I'm already hunting alternative sources close by.
