As you can probably already tell we have spent quiet a bit of money this week in stocking up our compost. I didn't want to get in the situation I found myself in last year of needing some compost and not being able to get any. This year I have stocked up in advance. I should add that the seed ompost was half price. I do love a bargain.

This week we have spent in total 51.92 and for the year so far £76.07.

  • I know what you mean about stocking up on compost as last year I nearly missed out as we went into lockdown.
