    This is a place I need to go.

      Definitely. The first few times could never find the place, back in the days before Google Street View.
      You go up 28th, and as soon as you pass Iris the highway bends to the west; it’s the first dirt road on the right. They’re about half a mile up that.

    Ah, so that’s the solution to my bindweed, a desert tortoise. Magnificent!

    Compost Tea. Is that a dare?

    • paridevita says:

      With milk and sugar.
      No, this contraption wheezes and gurgles very pleasantly (like my coffee machine); I think they sell it by the gallon jug. I bring my empty gallon water jugs there so they can use them. (I don’t need the tea.)
      They also recycle plastic nursery pots, and get a dollar deposit on the heavy-duty plastic bags which hold locally-made compost, mulch, etc. Bags visible at left.

    Bindweed-eating anything sounds good to me. Glad I don’t have it at my new place, or at the one before that. The 1st place was plagued with it for a few years before I won.
