notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone mastered the art of video remix, but that doesn't make it any less mind blowing.

See for yourself. This one might be my favorite:
