Composting Update

Apparently, it doesn't take much to get me excited.

Check out my compost pile:

I've been diligently working to build up a good pile this summer and I finally filled up the bin. I'm excited at how *beautiful* my compost has become. It's amazing to see how much waste we've diverted from our kitchen every week by simply throwing our food scraps into this bin. Not to mention all the grass clippings and fall clean-up leaves and twigs. I worried about filling up the bin this summer but seriously every time I have, the pile has decomposed enough to add more scraps. 

Goal for spring: to use my rich compost to plant my flower pots and vegetables. I love being green.
