Yeah I know you all think I am full of …crap (can you say crap Mum?)
But I have just moved my ‘trial’ compost heap to one side to begin heap number 2.
Number one has been deemed a success by…well by me actually. But I base this poinion on my organic gardening book.
It has many big earthworms moving through it, it is moist and it is warm. The breakdown of my organic matterial (as well as tissues and some non gloss paper) all break down very quickly.
So I want to use this on my garden now. I need to let the last few loads of vegies and lawn clipping break down and then it’s onto the garden!
The new heap is one lunchbox full of last nights scraps, looks small, but I never despise the day of small beginings!
I also have a worm farm that consumes a fair bit of my scraps so the heap does not get all the stuff. The worm farm (one of those black multi-level things you can get from Bunnings) has only been going for as long as the compost heap, which is the overflow from the farm, they don’t eat that fast! This farm is ready to go onto level two, so I am very excited about this, it’s kinda like giving birth to … nahhh maybe not that excited, but it shows that things are working.
I was reflecting about just how much rubbish was overflowing from bins as I walked my dog in the wee hours of the morning.
We sure throw out a heap of stuff!
I want to buy less, eat less, throw out less, spend less, travel for work less, use less…you know reduce my ‘footprint’ and LIVE MORE!
