My partner in crime is out of commission until Saturday. Believe me I am as sad as all of you. He is better at posting regularly and he is funnier, but you all are stuck with me, so get over it and enjoy my posts.
Now down to business.
We finally got a composter this past weekend! Our friend Amy over at Garden-of-Eatin’ (love the name and the blog) had posted about a composter that she bought at Costco which is the equivalent to our Wal Mart, so I had to check to see if our store had one. I have been looking online for one for awhile but if I could just pick one up that would be so much better. Obviously we found one and I have to agree with Amy on her comments about it. While it isn’t the best composter in the world, it is huge and does the job just fine.
Ours is about half way full of grass clippings, shreadded paper, leaves and other random things from around the garden. We have been saving things along the way so that we would have something to compost once we got the composter.
I haven’t taken the temperature yet but when I opened the lid yesterday I did feel a gust of warm air. I don’t see how it couldn’t be hot since everything else in this part of the world is suffering from heat exhaustion.
We have a nice little cubby to keep the composter right in the garden that is completely out of site from our patio, which is nice. Nobody wants to talk about or see your rotting left overs while having a nice meal.
Won’t be long and we will be spreading a nice dose of love all over our little veggie plants. They will be so happy!
