At the Bridge Street Inn guest, Fransico De Lovely, longly eyes the apple in his hand. “These homegrown apples are crisp like your line dried sheets. Every bite I take makes me pat my belly in joy. My belly has loved the company of many an apple raised on worm castings, garden compost, the shit from a goat, warm sun rays, and the most pure spring waters. Never have I tasted an apple quite as delicious as the one I hold in my hand.
I reply, “There are 3 elements missing from the above apple growing ingredients. They are happy guests, dirty sheets, and greywater.
After a happy guest checks out of The Bridge Street Inn by 10:30AM I strip their bed then put the sheets into the wash machine. When the sheets have gone through the wash cycle the biodegradable soap and dirty water exit.
The greywater flows through pipes that lead to the underground root system of the apple tree. The now damp clean sheets are line dried and the process starts over again.”
Fransico De Lovely looks at his clean toe nails and strokes his well trimmed mustache he sighs, “I notice several beds are unoccupied. Sadly, I’m only dirty enough to dirty one bed per night. What’s going to happen to her?” As he points towards the apple tree.
“Friend, cheer up!” I say, “The apple tree loves the frosty nights and warm sandal wearing days. Life at The Bridge Street Inn has a healthy ebb and flow that coincides with the seasons. As the tourist season slows into the colder months the winter rains replace the greywater system. Our apple tree has found a balance between what nature and happy guests can provide.”
Happy guests + dirty sheets + greywater + nature = delicious healthy apples
