A Gift From The Ants

As there's the site of an old Q Pit just on the other side of my border with the woods I'm always finding bits of clay pipe, in fact I consider it a good omen in the garden. This one appeared the other day when I was planting some beans. Maybe it was a gift from the ants, who live in an old chimney pot next to the beanpoles and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of aphids...

Somewhere in this 35 litre tub of apple tree chippings are two very tiny but rather important pieces of plastic...   ...they hold the shredder together. Fortunately, back in my youth I was a grand master at Lego diving, so the shredder is happy again, for now.

We're going for the Bladerunner 2049 look...
