Day 3: Just Keep Pruning and Trimming

I have three trash cans designated for plant cuttings only.

So, I’ll need to do two things:

1. Begin placing plant cuttings in trash bags.

2. Make a trip to the landfill.

It’s looking more and more like I’ll have to make a trip to the landfill. I have a lot of plant materials that need to be removed now.

And that’s my dilemma. With an established garden with lots of overgrowth, the landfill is going to be the only solution, or try to spread plant removal every other week when the greenery collections occur.

Note: This post will be updated throughout the day.
