Many of you may remember my Merida garden –
This is how it looked when we bought the place –
During the first few years I made a deal with myself to once a day fill one cubeta (5 gallon bucket) with trash and glass from the yard. The yard had been the trash barrel for I can’t even tell you how many years. We paid previous to this, and had nearly an entire dump truck of refuse removed from the garden. The daily removal didn’t happen, but usually about once a week I would fill a bucket.
Now, in Richmond, I once again have a large garden. This is what it looks like when we purchased it.
Now I am collecting gum balls. We have 2 large Sweet Gum trees. They are big and beautiful and give us lots of shade and bring in lots of birds.
Unfortunately they also produce and drop gum balls.
Today was my first collection, I didn’t even make a dent!
I no more than filled this bucket and turned and saw enough gumballs to fill 2 or 3 more buckets.
