A garden is a love song, a duet betweena human being and Mother Nature.

My kids saw this bowl full of veg and thought it was so pretty...they gasped when they heard it was going to the compost pile.  Who knew? Compost can be so lovely...OK to a gardener a big steamy heap its a work of art...seeing the brown dirt when you turn it can bring tears to ones eyes.
 This is my Compost pot...it sits in the pantry till its full and then gets taken down to the pile.  Don't let anyone make you think you have to buy an expensive compost pot with filters.  This is a container that was sitting around and I put a plate over it.  It doesn't smell, the only way compost smells rotten is if you put something you shouldn't in it.
 Here is the beginning of my lovely heap now.  I need to get to the Hardware store and get a fork so I can turn it...No not a dinner fork a pitch fork...silly readers.
Now I just need to find a manure supply and I will be in gardening heaven.
