Spring Tid Bits

spring 14 2There’s lots going on this time of year. We’re selling compost as fast as we can make it. Thank you to everyone who’s already gotten compost – it’s been a great spring so far. Below are some quick blurbs from the Dirt Hugger world.

If you would like to get compost on the weekends. Bryant Pipe in Hood River and The Dalles are open 9am -1pm and they carry our compost! Ace Hood River carry’s Dirt Hugger compost in bags.

April is free yard debris month in The Dalles at The Dalles Disposal. If you’ve got yard debris, this is a great opportunity to have it composted. Stop on by 1317 W 1st St Monday through Saturday. As always, Wednesdays are free brush days at Hood River Garbage. The brush from both of these sites comes to Dirt Hugger for composting.

Cascade Acupuncture in The Dalles still has a few beds left in their community garden. Carolla Stepper started these beds three years ago and offers the bed, with compost and irrigation for $20 for the season. Call 541-298-2378 or stop by: Monday,Thursday, Friday 9-5:30 and Wednesday 2-5:30.

Gorge Owned and the Rotary’s Spring Clean Up in Bingen is coming April 25-27th this year. As before all brush brought in on this weekend will be composted by Dirt Hugger.

We Have Bags!

New Dirt Hugger 1cu. ft. bags of compost and blendAfter many requests Dirt Hugger is now offering our Organic Compost in 1cu. ft. bags. Last summer, Recology sold us an old, compost-filled bagger. After digging out the three year old compost and testing how to actually bag compost, we’re starting to get a system down.  Added to that Full Sail kicked us some roller tables which will really help the bagging process. Head to Hood River Supply, our site, or Goldendale Garden Shop to pick up a bag.

Coming very soon will be our topsoil/composts garden blend (hopefully within a week). Big thanks to Tony and Pat at Hood River Supply, Jon Thomas and Pedro at Recology, and Jim and Colin at Full Sail!
