Howard's gardening advice

The boyf and I volunteered at the Veg Out community garden in St Kilda yesterday. Like my previous sessions, we were on compost duty, which means shovelling a lot of decomposing veggies, clippings and weeds to make a layered pile that will break down into the rich, dark compost that gets dug into the gardens.

I’ve been volunteering a few months, but only applied for my own plot two months ago, so it was a great surprise to be told we could have a plot yesterday. Turns out we were in the right place at the right time, as the plot assigner was there for the last day before he went off on travels and two plots had just become vacant.
