We have been composting here at Chiot’s run since we first moved in. We have a small yard so we can never make enough compost to help with our terrible soil. Throughout the years I have bought bagged chicken & cow manure, mushroom compost, and a few other amendments, but I have been looking for a local source of bulk compost. A couple weeks ago I stumbled upon an ad on Craig’s List for compost. Mr Chiots and I borrowed my parents Durango & trailer for the task. When we arrived at Hawk Trucking in Massillon and Tim loaded 2 1/2 yards of compost into the trailer.
Of course, since it’s always an adventure with us, the tire went flat as soon as the tons of compost hit the trailer. I must admit the poor trailer is old and well-advanced in years so I guess a flat tire wasn’t so bad.
Tim was super great and helped us pump up the tire and we were on our way. After a slow trip home we arrived sans any other problems. The trailer was unloaded and we have a huge pile of compost ready to be worked into the flower beds.
Tim’s compost is GREAT (and fairly inexpensive)! I plan on making a few more trips so I can add some to all my flowerbeds. This will be put to good use when I plant all those Hydrangeas I bought at Donzell’s!
I love this sign Tim had hanging back by the HUGE compost pile.
If you need any compost let me know, I can send your e-mail address to Tim. If you don’t have a trailer you can always take a few rubbermaid totes and fill them with compost (we filled the back of the durango with totes full of compost to make the most of the trip).
