Our New Plans – All Good
I have been distracted lately by Christmas, New Year (away on holiday in Marrakech), my birthday (a big one) and courses on Internet Marketing. So please excuse my neglect of clevercomposting. Behind the scenes though, life has gone on and the compost worms are still doing fine and the compost bin is gradually filling up. Until recently, we have been exceptionally lucky in this wet winter. So far, no floods in our immediate vicinity, but instead, an unlikely run of those wintry summer days with a weak sun and relatively warm temperatures. In fact, plants that would normally be dead by now, or at least dormant are still sporting green leaves, buds and the odd splash of colour. It is a wonderful gift for us and it has certainly made the winter bearable. I am conscious of our good fortune, however and if things change between now and Spring, well, I guess that is what could be called Justice.
There has been some flooding around the lakes, though. The path is impassable at the moment without proper equipment and the lakes themselves are high, with the water begging for escape – the volume of liquid looking too big for the container. There has been heavy rain these last few nights, a brief storm which did an astounding amount of damage considering its short life, and the temperatures have dropped slightly. But – the bulbs are poking up several inches above the soil and that has to be a good thing!
While the Offer Walls we had previously were fun, they were a bit limiting, so I have made a decision to change the way we show-case composting products on clevercomposting. Part of the change will include having a store affiliated with Amazon. You can access it if you click on ‘Our Store’ in the top navigation bar and I hope that you will find the information there useful. Initially, I am looking for only best selling products that average 4.5 – 5 star reviews and which have been received with great enthusiasm by their purchasers. There is not a huge range of stock because I have concentrated on equipment for composting only and as I said above, I am trying to keep the standard high without breaking the bank for you all. Initially, the store caters only for .com customers but in the next few weeks, all being well, we will be opening for .UK customers also.
My aim is to do the work for you and cut the confusion, so that you do not have to spend hours searching on the internet for the best product choices. This plan is a ‘work in progress’ and there will undoubtedly be other changes coming.
Finally, I have a three photos for you that I just love. They are totally irrelevant to this post I know, but I am going ahead anyway! I took them last year at Sissinghurst Castle in Kent, UK. They are of thyme beds and who would have thought that that humble herb which is so spectacular when cooking in the kitchen, could be so effective in a garden setting. I have started collecting and planting already! Bring on the Compost!
