My Compost Bin is Steaming. That’s a Good Thing, Right?
Why, yes it is, at least, according to Composting for Dummies and Google and; information garnered from two independent sources can’t be wrong. Right? Someone tell me I’m right.
So, yes, the composting is a new experience for me. I feel really good about it, smug, almost, I mean; I’m doing something good for the earth. I’m saving heaps of kitchen scraps from the landfill which means that my kitchen waste won’t be spewing methane gas into our atmosphere.
I feel so good about it, in fact, that I’m also considering the purchase and installation of a rain barrel because; rain water that drains into storm sewer systems also pollutes our earth. And, Ok, we don’t actually have a storm sewer system in our small town and our rain water drains into our grass but, still; rain barrels are cool and I want one.
In other news, I plan to stop shaving my legs, to serve more granola and to teach my children the fine art of beading dreadlocks because, in for a penny, in for a pound, I always say.
And, Hugh just threatened me with divorce papers if I do.
Fine. Way to care about the earth, honey!
