Too hot? (Eyes widen, huge grin)
-- Doing a happy dance --
Geesh, think I'm getting a bit over excited about compost? At least this is the right place to do it. LOL!
Thanks for the link Longy - too scientific for this early hour but I've got it saved for later today. You and Weezie told me all I need to know for now
I'll quit hasslin the worms
I guess I should give my partner kudos - she said it was too hot and that's why they weren't there!
Lets talk about my neighbors again...just for kicks....when I was making this first pile, I was cutting down some small weed
. Well, I sat on my back steps with my wheel barrow and pulled off each leaf, and then shredded them by hand LOL! Am I nuts or what? 'Least I'm sure they thought so. Sounds like I have too much time on my hands. I wanted to do it right for fear if my first real attempt failed I'd get discouraged and give up too easily. So, I did add all fairly small stuff to the pile (even shredded my paper and stuff by hand into small pieces). I'm glad I did! Hey, I think I'll take a picture of my compost heap and share it here LOL!
Yes, it's great that the compost heap is my concern of the day. Ain't life grand in the garden?
Yesterday we got a merchandise delivery, and I asked the driver for his left over pallets. I've got 4 now, and am going to start building my 3-container bin (need a few more pallets to finish). I'm way into this composting thing!!! Thanks, heroes!
