The Joke's On Us.

Today I finished off forking over the rose garden borders, I also got the last of the potatoes planted plus some more lettuce and the first of the rocket and spicy greens mix salad leaves. I have a few more things to get in as soon as possible.
I opened a new bucket of blood fish and bone this morning and was quite amazed at how much wasted space there was in the bucket. I thought when I bought it the bucket looked way bigger than normal now it seems its just another of lifes scams.

I don't feel cheated about the lack of fertiliser as it says 10kg on the bucket but what really gets me is that the hippys of this world are forever going on about saving the planet yet never seem to bother about scams like this, there is twice as much plastic involved as there needs to be, all of which needs getting rid of, when the truck that was hauling the stuff half way round the world was full it was still half empty yet I'm the one made to pay for running my car on a weekend. This bucket is only one example, every darn thing you open is half empty, and whats it all for? Its just to con us in to thinking we're getting more than we are. Talking of bonemeal or any fertiliser there was a time when you could get 25kg bags of the stuff, how come now you can only get it in these stupid buckets which no doubt adds another couple of pound on to the price of the product as well as halving the amount you get. Anyway if you want me to take global warming seriously you're going to have to set a better example than this, then I might follow, until then its just a joke.
Thank you for your comments on the last walk I did. I have added some pictures in to the posts now if you want to go back for a second look.

I'm so glad you posted a photo of the "stool" you sat on during your walk. I had been trying to picture it in my head.

Packaging is the largest source of waste in our household. I try and recycle every last piece, but if the maufacturers were smarter, a lot of it wouldn't be necessary.

I have had my potatoes in for a couple of weeks now but I need to get on to planting the greens.

I'm so glad you spoke up about this - everytime I see it, it makes me blue - makes me think of "Atlas Shrugged". Where is their pride in their product?
