Great Steaming Piles of Crap

Some of you may be wondering what messy so and so left great big steaming piles all over the path at The Oak Tree. We rented a tipper truck to get a load of crap from Capel St Mary today, well that’s what it is but it’s called secondhand organic compost because it’s already been used for mushrooms. Lovely, if you like that sort of thing.

The trouble is that you have to sweat the asset once you hire a truck, so there wasn’t too much time for the niceties of getting it in the right places. Compared with ditching it near the parking zone we did okay, with the aim of reducing the amount of shifting that will need to happen. First we had to get it from Capel, the place had a JCB bucket loader which made loading easy and quick.

This stuff does give off a hum, though it’s not as bad as it could be, presumably because of its preloved status…

Delivery is a breeze

Delivery to site is a breeze using a tipper truck, compared to forking it off! You do end up with a little bit of that at the end.
