Covid Blessing

Last year in the middle of Covid I thought I wouldn't be able to plant vegetables as the chicken manure I usually use was not available. But then, I thought about the Grange in Issaquah and called them. They took the order over the phone and delivered it!!! No contact necessary. Two young men arrived and placed the bags of manure and organic compost where I wanted them. Now, I COULD stink up my car with two or more loads of chicken manure. That's how I used to do it. But I just called up the Grange! I'll be doing it that way from now on. They even had a record of what my order was.
