Helloooo to all my SOS friends……The weather has been cold, rainy and gloomy, so I have been doing my best to prepare for Spring! I am turning over a new leaf, so to speak. I have decided to compost this year. Well, let me clarify. I am going to compost in my own back yard…….the only other time I have composted I would haul my little daily compost fillings up to the church’s vegetable garden site and place my fillings in their compost bin. I have been reading a lot on gardens and gardening these past few weeks. I scour all of your posts. I have been watching Monte Don faithfully. Ha Ha! And, every day I check out my little postage stamp yarden…….no that is not a spelling error, I would call my patch in the world a yarden. And just about every morning this is what I wake up to. Some critter is pulling out my plants and just laying them on the ground! I have sprayed for deer, rabbits, cats and dogs, all insects whatsoever, and placed sonic spikes in the ground to deter voles/moles/gophers. But, every morning the critter has found a new spot to aggravate me! Here is what greeted me this morning!
But, to take my mind off that I will concentrate on composting………..so here is my sink-side buddy………
and this is my new friend, the cutest composter………now don’t laugh or raise you eyebrows like that………I am sure this will work…………I think……. You see, you add your fillings and then turn three times every three days, adding green stuff and brown stuff……and eventually the stuff breaks down and makes a “TEA”, there is a spout to collect that and then one gets lovely compost, eventually. I think I may need two, one to be fermenting and one to be filling. And, I have not decided where to place it as yet. The instructions say a garage. For now it is on my back garden-yarden porch.
In the meantime back to my fascinating read………..To the Bin and Beyond………
No, I think I will just sulk a while and think/ look at the beautiful market photos from Hvar, Croatia. I’m sure my new composting skills will have likewise results, in my flower yarden !
I bet they compost!
