Oh Chipper, How do I love thee?
Seriously. I have wanted to get a chipper for so long I cannot remember when I first had the idea. Talk about delayed gratification. Of the last year, I started scanning the garden section of Craigslist. Then last week, I spied an ad for a little electric job for $150. I practically ran out of the house to get it. No haggling. Just a great big Thank You and we loaded it up. Well, just got to use it this morning. OMG!!!! Really should have done this years ago.
From this day forward, no bio-load will leave the yard. If it is too big to go in the chipper then it goes in the fire pit, then the ashes go into the compost. The cycle is complete.
