I was going to start with compost talk but I thought these pictures of frozen chocolate covered banana bites would grab readers attention. I love these pictures almost as much as I love this frozen treat. I like to add salted peanuts on the outside. The mix of sweet chocolate, creamy banana, and salty nuts is amazing.
Now on to compost talk!
I have completed one full year with my compost bin. I'm so impressed with the result! Being the cheap person that I am I wouldn't spend a dime on a compost bin. I built mine from old pallets taking up space in my garage. I just throw in my compost materials (leaves, grass clippings, and fruit and veggie scraps PLUS WORMS!) and then turn it once in a while. It gets a lot of morning sun so that keeps it warm through out the day.
Look how dark it is! I just wish I had some chicken poop to add to it. My grandfather swore by the stuff and his garden was always lush and green.
And lastly, I expect my Magnolia tree to bloom this week. I've been checking the buds every morning and they are just starting to open. Check back later this week to see it in full bloom. I wish I could virtually send the smell of the blossoms. Wonderful!
