Spending a penny?

If we are to believe the news today, the National Trust is encouraging us all to ..err..spend a penny on the compost heap. This "addition" speeds up the composting process and saves water too as the loo isn't flushed.

So, as there are many keen gardeners here, keen on natural methods, form an orderly queque cooers and follow me to the bottom of the garden! ShockedLaughingShocked
Bit wet out tonight but as you can see I'm properly attired! Wink

KittyB's Avatar Have to say the opportunity to enjoy a quick 'pipi rustique' is seized upon with great gusto by the males in this house too! I just hope the neighbours aren't peering over the wall near the compost heap. Those poor baby rats will get a fragrant bath.

Now, Patsy, honestly. White wellies are so, well, food-industry-chic, can't we fix you up with some jolly purple ones? Hunters in Violet Gloss are THE welly of the season, don't you know?!

Milkmaid's Avatar Oh my boys are well ahead of the NT, they pee outside all of the time, the compost bin is a bigger target than the loo, so that will give them more to aim forLaughing
