Compost Bin is Up

We'll start with a small area for now. A few rules, however.

YES: weeds, leaves, vegetables, fruit, tea, coffee grounds.

NO: meat, seafood, dairy, eggs/egg shells, bread, cooked vegetables.
This will keep the smells down and many critters out.

A cover over my work table out back. Mostly the staging area for all the plants that will (hopefully) be potted up soon.

  2. I actually had a call on Gardenline one year from a young mom who was given produce from her neighbor that had made his compost with his dog's poop. Because she had young children, I told her that they should eat the produce, carrots, radishes. He was just digging holes and burying the poop around the veggies! Have fun with LH! Tell her I said howdy!

  3. Hey, that should say shouldn't eat the produce! Getting adjusted to a new keyboard! Hope you had a great time with LH! I think she had to go to the Emergency Room when she got home or was that the Convenience Store? I'm just jealous and should have been there too! Too many irons in the fire at the moment.
