Wanna take a nap?

You had better be quick, because by tomorrow this old wool mattress will be buried under wet leaves and grass clippings, wood ash and all kinds of garden debris… Maybe even a quick morning piss just to get it all juicy!  As a base for a pile of compost, it is ideal. Might look strange to those who don’t know how great an old sweater or mattress is for heavy soil, but, well, now you know! 

Hoping for Humus…

Not everything rots, so before you go dumping synthetic, plastic handled, spring-loaded crap into your garden, hoping to create rich humus, make sure the mattress is wool… or straw! (Straw? Yes. I was actually given a few straw mattresses a couple years ago. So Italian! Seems like something from another century!)
