Composting Yet?

My brother and I were talking on the phone the other day and he mentioned the leaves in his yard. He was going to take them to a friend’s house and dump them there.

“Start a compost pile,” I told him, for the millionth time. I try to persuade everybody to do it, but usually get few takers.

“Seriously, the leaves are good material and no one will even notice,” I said. He said he would think about it. Lol. Damn right he will cuz I’ll keep bringing it up.

So, while there is all this lovely organic matter just laying all over the place, pick a spot, rake a heap, add some rotten food and boom, baby, you’re a composter.

Let me know how it goes 🙂

I'm just a skinny girl with a lot of hair and a couple of stories. I'm 26, married, and have two very active, sparkly-eyed babies. My mother lives with me so I've got my best ally and source of wisdom here, too. Everything I do is for my family. We like to garden, paint, start projects, read, and watch a little bit of Netflix. I'm working on my cooking, parenting with patience, and learning how to love life where I'm at. Though I've abandoned my degree three times in two different states (yes, I said three times), I have listened and watched and picked up a couple of tips. Most of what I write is entirely non-fictional because I let life spin the tales. I'm ready to learn more and am excited to meet others on the same path. This is to serve as a record of what I've done. All pictures have been taken by me, unless otherwise credited.

  1. like most things, it is not quite as simple as you state. to have it done right, it takes care and some attention or you just have a stinking mess. a compost pile needs turning and watching that it doesnt get too hot or attracts the wrong type of insects. a little TLC goes a long way. right???

    1. Sure does! But it can def be done! As for insects, I have so many birds around that there doesnt seem to be many. And Im always turning mine, though admittedly it’s kinda a lot of work.
