Started to mix the miramar compost with the bagged compost and the bio-stack compost. It has been put in the pile labeled mix compost. And it looks so nice.

The side walk needed to be swept. And we also cut up some plants in compost bin #1 into smaller piece. Noticed that the ice plant behind garden 2 is almost dry. We will start pruning it into small pieces next week.

We swept the sidewalk, pruned the pepper tree and cut up pea plants in compost bin #1. Helped garden 1 find tunnels made by gophers and set some traps.

We pruned some of the peas that were in compost bin #1, into smaller pieces. Then checked garden 1 for gopher damage. Couldn't see any new dirt mounds in the rows. Did see some in the corner by row 1. Tried to find the tunnels and couldn't find them before it was time to leave. Left the traps on counter in garden 1.
