I’m totally obsessed with my compost pile. I even took a picture of all of that decomposing organic goodness before I added more grass clippings yesterday. I have a whole new appreciation for my coffee grounds, egg shells, dryer lint, and those little pesky cheerios I find every where. And it makes me a little more sad when I see more yard waste than I can haul being put on the curb on trash day. Folks have a gold mine sitting out their and they are throwing it away. And come this spring they’ll be spending their hard earned money on bags of Miracle Grow topsoil. It makes no sense.
Fall is in the air and I’m charting out all the neighbors with large trees in their yards so I can come and get their leaves this fall. I plan on starting a second pile for leaf mold. Mmmm…. leaf mold.
