Letter: Disturbing discovery of dirty deed by dirty sneak

May 20, 2011

Last weekend, I was readying my garden beds for the annual Mother's Day planting.

I'm a bit of a lazy gardener so I let our compost set in bins rather than stirring it on a regular basis.

The compost, being two years old, should have been well "cooked" and very rich.

Imagine my surprise when I found one of the bins opened and emptied of its contents.

Really? Compost?

Who would steal compost?

Compost has no market value so it's not as though someone would remove it to sell.

Taking our "black gold" was certainly a dirty trick!
