The Great Compost Delivery of 2020

When I conceptualized the idea of a compost delivery back in the spring, maybe I didn’t think I would survive to fall!  When the time came, it was more difficult than I had imagined.


We hadn’t had the tall sides on my Dad’s old 1992 Dodge diesel truck in over 10 years.  Rust had corroded the slots the sides fit down into, so we had to get out our little Oxy acetylene torch and cut away the rust before we could fit the sides in.


Then I loaded the truck full of compost and watched the tires squat.  My trepidation grew.  Was I going to make it to Madison?


The next morning I took off on my route.  Did you know there are websites that will help you plan the best route if you have multiple stops?  Bonus discovery.


I drove slow, 50 mph on the way up because I was worried about the weight.  But I made it!  Everyone was home and helped unload their order.  Thank you!


I think that will be my one and only compost delivery.  I always have compost though, so if anyone would like to come to the farm and pick some up for your garden, you are welcome to it.  

UPDATE: Taking orders for delivery every other Saturday to Madison. Next date December 5th.  Email Matthew with order and/or questions: oakgrovelane@yahoo.com. Thank you!
