Compost Logan Square

I was wondering if there is a place in Logan Square where one could drop off compost? I would like to avoid a “pick up service” if possible. I am located on the west side of Logan.

Thank you!

    @Bellhome definitely send me a message- I would be happy to take your scraps, or should I say the farmily would happily take your scraps.

  • Matt, Sent you a PM a while ago to coordinate drop off. Please check your email. Thanks!

"thank god." story about dying dad in hospital, tank on e, needs gas, let me take your number and i'll pay you back. blah blah blah. i swiped my card for her on the pump and left. i knew it was probably a scam. thought, if she just charges the 30 bucks she really needs to get somewhere, it's legit. if she fills it up to 60, it's a scam. well, charge card showed 59 bucks. tonight, day after new years day, another woman (different, yet could have been the first one's mom- both were equally frantic and articulate...i admire their rehearsal skills if nothing else)in a suv waves me over (i'm on foot this time, but same gas station at calf and armitage.) "do you speak english -- thank god." same EXACT script. her mother's in northwestern, card is over-extended, blah blah blah. i guess word got around that it worked, so the scammers are working it. so adjust your need to respond (if any) accordingly. (by the way, i gave the second scammer the loose bills in my purse. it's a REALLY cold day, and she took the time to give me an education. that's always appreciated.)

    Three male cats were seen limping badly in the Hermosa neighborhood. My friends and I were asked to check it out. We trapped the three and discovered they all had wounded paws and/or legs, possibly from fighting. Their wounds were infected and the vet thought at least one might need to have his l...

Support the LaTorre Family, a shining line in the Humboldt Park/Logan Square Community

A beautiful, generous and compassionate family of Chase School needs your support. Last month, their 6 month old baby was diagnosed with Muscular Spinal Atrophy. With three other children,and being able to work inconsistently, they need our financial support to pay for their child's numerous treatments to beat all odds and hopefully be a future student of Chase School.

Please consider donating or passing and sharing with friends and family. Let's spread some love :)

  • I hope the family has already been told about free or low cost assistance from the Muscular Dystrophy Association. www.mda.org While Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a motor neuron disease and not exactly muscular dystrophy, the MDA has a program for persons with SMA.

Looking for a professional rose expert or a very knowledgeable aficionado

This is my rose "tree," I guess it's called. It is all one plant. It's at least 50 years old and seems to have gotten along well without much intervention. But the canes have grown extremely long and there's a lot of dead trunk at the base. I do not know what it needs in terns of care so I'd like to find a professional horticulturist or a very knowledgeable aficionado to help me help it survive even longer.

Any suggestions?

All I know about a rose is that by any other name, it's still a rose.

  • Could it be a climbing rose? I have been taking care of old rose bushes since I moved into my house 33 yrs ago and found some in the yard. Every year it is necessary to cut back the brown parts to the green parts. Remove any dead pieces at...

    Could it be a climbing rose? I have been taking care of old rose bushes since I moved into my house 33 yrs ago and found some in the yard. Every year it is necessary to cut back the brown parts to the green parts. Remove any dead pieces at the bottom. Clear away the debris at the base of the plant and sprinkle some compost. Wait til May to give it a dose of good plant food designed for flowering plants mixed with water. Water at the base only.

    Roses are greedy plants. They demand plenty of food, water and sun.

  • Hi--try emailing Chicago Botanic Gardens (plantinfo@chicagobotanic.org); they have answered my many gardening questions! Lovely rose!

    yes, weeds, "rosie" is quite amazing. 50 years old all on her own. i tried feeding her at various times and it actually seemed to inhibit grown and blooms.

    i am at least going to install a trellis for her and see if she likes that - but she has been running wild for so long that she might rebel.

    working with her is not without its hazards - the thorns are verrry long and very very sharp - it's like she is saying "Leave me alone! Don't touch me!"

    you know how it is ... maybe set in her own ways after all these years!

    we'll see. i'd really love for her to make it to 100.

moving boxes in taste freez alley

as of 8 p.m. on wed night, one of my neighbors disassembled a bunch of Home Depot moving boxes and left them flat, stacked between the garbage cans in the alley behind tastes freez near armitage and California. if you need some, there are at least a dozen small moving boxes and about 7 or so M-L boxes, all flattened and left for first come, first take. so if you need some come grab em before it rains/snows some more. garbage pick up is not till Monday so these were left for whoever needs them.
