I thought I was lazy but...

Post  altagarden on 4/22/2011, 11:54 pm


I always toss leaves from my elm tree at the side of my house, in a little dead zone that leads nowhere. I thought I was being lazy. But then I read about composted leaf mold in Mel's OLD SFG book a a good fertilizer. I dug down in my dead zone and it's a gold mine. I found a little video online about how to do it.

My grandfather used to call me the most efficient person he knew. He told me that I would get nominated for all the cruddy jobs in the military. I felt insulted and asked what he meant. He said, not because people hated you....you would get nominated because they would know they could count on you to get the job done to the minimal requirement with the least amount of effort in the quickest amount of time.

Still insulted, he had to really work on me over time to convince me efficiency and laziness CAN be two different things.

Time has shown, though, that I am BOTH... affraid

This is a great video to share. I may have to adopt some of this myself. Thanks!
