Sundays at Home

This is one of the first Sunday's off I have had in many months, and I've enjoyed a day in the garden.
Now, I know that this is a strange thing for a maker of glass beads to blog about, but we have had a huge day using our latest toy. I have to admit that it's been a long time since I raved about something that I couldn't read, wear, eat or smell...so here it is...The Morrison Quiet Electric Garden Shredder

We have trimmed trees all afternoon and have put all of the branches that would fit through the shredder and collected the beautiful mulch in buckets. Not only have we saved a huge trailerload of green rubbish going into the landfill, we have created wonderful mulch and compost base for the garden. And it was all so quiet and easy! The branches that didn't fit through it have been put aside to be sawn up for firewood - so absolutely nothing leaves the property and absolutely nothing is wasted.
We're feeling rather grubby but very pleased with ourselves tonight - it must be time for a celebratory glass of wine! So...
Clean and green? Tick!
Pleased with our purchase? Tick!
Tired and dirty? Tick!

I had to chuckle at this post. This machine looks so small it is amazing it could do so much work!! Most of the mulch makers i have seen around here are rather large and noisy too.

Congrats. And a glass of wine for me too, please.

What a great idea! I'll share it with our resident gardener...not me! :-)

I'll take that glass of wine, too, please.
