Stealing Compost

My compost pile has been cooking very nicely ever since the night I crept over to my neighbor's curb and absconded with a bag of grass clippings she had put out for the trash. I could have just asked her to give the clippings to me, but it seems more adventurous to make off with them under the cover of darkness. I have a whole border that is nothing but hard-packed clay, so my project for the summer is to make a Big Old Pile of compost to work into the ground come fall.

On days when I drive my pickup I often snag pick-up loads of grass clippings and leaves for my compost piles but on days when I'm "flying it's much harder due to the lack of available runways.
