browns to greens

im the leaf buster
my old black truck is always ready to go
all you have to do is call
ill come running

yesterday thats what i did
got a call
hey doc my neighbor just scalped and raked his lawn
do you want the bags of stuff he collected
its full of dried dead grass leaves twigs and other debris

yes i said
ill be there tomorrow

so off i went in my trusty old black truck
knowing that this would be a load of stuff
i knew exactly where it would go
those country n chicken they gonna love this stuff

so drove up to this house
there they were
15 bags of ecstasy for those hens
i could see eggs and more eggs
veggies and more veggies
in my dreams

i loaded them up after briefly inspecting them
then off i went
on the trip back home
all i could think of was those hens are gonna be happy

ill put them here
this is the spot the chickens like the most
between the fence and the 3 ft horse panels
heck at the bottom of that pile i have old paperwork
that will compost down with all the other stuff
i throw in

this is also where we throw our kitchen scraps
the chickens attack it like sharks after chum

when its all over with and we grow stuff
it all turns green
like this crockpot of greens i cooked last week
pot liquor was good
if you dont know what that is then you aint from the south
its not alcohol
but its better
i also recently trimmed my asparagus bed down to the ground
since all the fronds i guess thats what you call them
had frozen to the ground
then i added my compost from my compost pile that the
chickens prepared for me
then i covered it with leaves mostly live oaks that i
obtained from many of you last year
it acts as a mulch to keep the beds warm and moist
now we need to wait a couple months

and those asparagus spears will start popping out of
the ground
more greens
from the browns

my version of garden artistry
