Shredder ecstasy day!

Thursday, 30 Sep 10 Sunny 32°C / 90°F

OK, so I cleared some of the Mastic (Pistacia lentiscus) that was encroaching on one of my figs. The natural next step is to shred the b trimmed branches.

But – once my shredder/mulcher is out of the storage room, there is no stopping it – and me :-)

So I started looking around for branches to prune, and lo and behold – I found plenty. And all those dry branches laying around that needs to be reduced to mulch..

I’m always fascinated by how huge piles of trimmed branches turn into tiny piles of mulch…

My city does not mulch the trimmings it collects, or perhaps it does, but does not distribute it to the citizens. And nobody sells mulch around here, so I have to rely on my own machine, made by Bosch, to provide…

    Great solution to own a shredder, as mulch is really difficult to come by around here – but don’t the snakes and scorpions make their home in the mulch when you spread it around?

    I haven’e seen any scorpions nor snakes. I have a family of Mongoose (נמיות) resident than may be responsible to the absence of snakes,
