Took a ride out to Smithfield Peat Company today to get some yard waste compost for my planting box. With buckets and plastic storage bins loaned from a friend, I was able to get enough to fill my box. The company sells top soil, gravel, mulch, compost, and more by the yard. I was shy of a yard but they were very generous to let me have just as much as I needed.
It’s late in the season to be preparing the box, but some of my plants are really going to appreciate being transferred to this cozy bed.
