After Gary's uncle and girlfriend left today I happened to look at craigslist and saw an ad for free used concrete block. Even though some of the block have orange paint on one side, we decided we could put that side to the inside of our raised vegetable bins. So Gary went and got a load lickety split.
Of course the block had mortar we had to chip off. While Gary was unloading, I was chipping away with a hammer and I saw this millipede. I touched him lightly with a leaf and he curled up real quick. Millipede cover quite a distance in a short amount of time; much more than I would have suspected.
We learned our local landfill has free compost, we'll get a load tomorrow. It pays to stay alert, there's lots of free stuff out there. Have a good one; comments are welcome.
