“Is it working?” I am usually asked when I talk about our compost pile. Today, I walked down with scraps of potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and beets and plopped them onto the side of the pile. Each time I pause and look at it, really study the pile and think about the numerous trips I’ve … Continue reading Compost Pile
