I Love the Smell of Compost in the Morning

February 1st-- that's really the start of spring round here. Right now the biggest thing I'm growing is my compost pile. Pictured at left.

The best thing about composting is that you can add all kind of gross stuff and, ta da, you get gorgeous black gold. Along with kitchen scraps, tea bags, coffee grounds, fall leaves, you can empty your vacuum cleaner bags and dryer lint-- and best of all-- stir in some shredded bills and rejection letters.

Will be spreading compost soon, so I can go from this:

  1. I love the title of the post! Great fun...I can't find my compost heap OR barrel for all the snow here.....

  2. Snow is beautiful...but we don't get it that much. So I think it's only fair to have an early spring...glad Mother Earth agrees. It's so good to see the bulbs poking through, too. Don't mean to rub it in, though!
