Petunia wondered what I might find as the snow melted. The campaign sign is gone – picked up, I believe, by the organization that sponsored it. But as the snow fades away, not all is lovely. Here’s a view of my deck.
I admit it, it’s a mess. Pizza boxes are soiled with food residue, so they’re not recyclable. I stashed them in the snow piles on our deck. Now I can use them as weed blocks in the new garden or as a base to start the rock garden again.
I will admit to ordering a few pizzas during the winter, but not all of these. I scavenged the boxes after a recent party at work. Now I should have plenty for the expanded garden in the backyard and the rock garden, too. Anything left over will be soaked, torn into strips, and composted.
Some see a pizza. I see potential.
I never thought of a good use for pizza boxes! Now I know, and we may even donate to the effort now and then.
Are you sure that the glues used in the boxes are biodegradable? we use straw and marsh hay for our weed barriers.
