Ooh, how embarrassing. . .
When there was a good snow cover on the ground, it made sense just to chuck the compost waste over the fence. Out of laziness, and a dislike of mud, I continued doing that after the repeated snow-melts. Now it looks like a garbage dump out there. And my neighbors can see this from their back windows! I am mortified.
Like an airplane restroom, the compost ball is occupied most of the time, and is a pain to roll. But more than that, when using a compost pile as a way to reduce what you send to a landfill, then you need two piles: one accumulating, and one cooking. So we need a container to house the pile that is accumulating.
On the bright side, I came across the idea of cutting boards like Lincoln-logs to make an easy-assemble easy-disassemble container. Now I just need to get it built.
But enough about garbage. Take a look at what has been waiting in the veggie garden under the snow!
Carrot. 'Nuff said.
If this chard survives the winter I MUST collect the seeds!
Garlic! Hooray for garlic!
