What HAPPENED to the person that was gonna be a career girl, kids later in life, see the world, have a maid. Where IS she?
She probably died when I got married at the age of 21, but that’s blog for another day.
We finally did it, we bit the bullet and bought a compost bin. Actually, I was considering some of the 300 dollar ones on costco.com, but I thought I’d see what the area had to offer, so we could steer clear of large shipping charges (they tend not to be tiny things). We saw the one that Home Depot had to offer, it was tucked in a corner and the box was already composting, if you get the picture. I found one of the workers and asked if we could get a discount since it was obviously not in top condition (the actual compost bin was fine, it was just the box). We ended-up getting it for 50 bucks, which I thought was a pretty good deal. I am now trying to figure out what can and can’t go in and how we can make sure it doesn’t stink. Right now, we have a lot of “brown” things in there but hopefully Drew can mow the lawn soon so we can add some “green” things to it. I think it’ll be fun to watch the stuff in there change — a real learning experience for the boys, hopefully. If anyone has tips, feel free to share them. So far ours has dryer lint, cantaloupe rinds and leaves in it. I am hoping to turn it weekly.
