A lovely couple in Kinglassie had some blocks going free. “I’m here for the exercise” I said “you’re at the right place” and I was. These blocks are called grunters, they are twice the thickness of a normal breeze block and feel about four times as heavy. They are perfect for a raised bed. The Kia, not really designed to take huge loads, managed 10 blocks before I thought it was a bit low on the suspension. It took three loads. On the final load, driving through a nearby village, I noticed a wall had been knocked down, and I was told I can have as many of the bricks as I can carry.
Good news, the mushroom compost man is alive and may send me a date of when he can deliver, I was getting nervous.
