More Compost

We worked on building some more compost bins today. We’ve filled up the ones we have already, between the weeds, grass clippings and the coffee grounds we get from the coffee shop. An no, I do not want to stop getting those grounds. Our soil is so poor we need all the compost we can get.

We are mixing it with shredded paper. We had to get a bigger one last weekend, because we, er, burned out the other one from too much use. This new one — much nicer. Eats cardboard boxes like cereal boxes without blinking.
