Buyer Beware

If you are a gardener and the quality of your soil matters to you, beware of what you are buying.

Much of the "SOIL" that is being sold in bags in garden centres is composted material that contains garbage.  GROUND UP GARBAGE.

Oh, and the "MANURE" you think you're buying  to fertilize your veggie plants?  It is primarily "COMPOST"   (read: ground up yard waste and kitchen garbage collected curb side mixed with all kinds of refuse that people couldn't be bothered to put into a garbage bag along with some trees that have been put through a chipper.)

Here is a small sampling of what was found in bags of  "MANURE".  That's right, ALL kinds of plastic.  Pieces of soft and hard plastic of various types and colours.

Heart to Heart

How can I consider anyone else? 
There's nobody with whom I'd rather set up house.

You set my synapses ablaze,
with cunning words in lofty phrase

My heart skips like double dutch,
tightly held in your warm clutch

Snuggled in deep, closing the distance,
heart to hearts on the phone for instance

Though we've made no promises,
guilty I feel in the arms of  any other Thomases.
