Yesterday I showed you the project that I had been working on the last couple months, thank you for all the kind complements. My husband has also been working on a project too.
Last month we maxed out our Earth Machine compost bin. In my efforts to unfreeze the pile, so that I could stuff more banana peels into it, I poured some hot water into the bin. It didn’t help and now I have big mound of smelly half-frozen decomposing food. Until last week I was throwing away my compost scraps in the trash bin. This made me feel sad, but then my husband came to the rescue and built me a three bin compost system. He used this plan as an inspiration but made a some changes along the way. We now have plenty of space for composting, thank you awesome husband!
My new compost and I are getting acquainted and I’m dutiful filling it with layers of fruit and vegetable scraps, leaves, and rabbit manure. I dream of the beautiful compost that will fill my garden beds, which is my husband’s next project.
As I dream about gardening and enjoy the sunshine outside I tackled, literally, the overgrown lilac bushes. I won, but not unscathed. Now that the weather is warming up we are spending more time outside. When it’s overcast most days in the winter it’s impossible to stay inside while the sun shines. While I still have one more quilt, a sweater and a book to finish before Easter, I’m sure there will still be plenty of chilly overcast days in the weeks to come for sitting by the fire with a book and Teddy’s sweater.
