Compost

This is just one more reason to love Wildman’s elementary school.  Wildman does not get much homework beyond reading for 1 hour each week but composting is an exception.  A mom with a passion for gardening has taken on the school grounds in an effort to beautify them.  Already she has spearheaded a butterfly garden, lots of lovely pavered pathways, raised planter boxes, a memorial garden and a sensory garden.  The place is looking pretty amazing.  I’ve noticed a mini greenhouse and a rain barrel too.  The latest project is rallying the entire student body to help with making compost to nourish the plants.  What could be more educational and fun?

So, I’ve dedicated a little black bucket for our compost contributions and the picture shows what Wildman will be taking to school with him tomorrow.  With all of the fresh veggies I’ve been consuming on the South Beach Diet, I have lots of deposits to make!

Happy Friday to you!  I’ll be going to yoga this morning, cleaning my house in preparation for a family birthday party on Saturday, heading to the boys’ flag football game and ending the night at my grandma’s birthday party across town.  I’m looking forward to it all.  Especially since J is coming home tomorrow morning too!

    We tried a compost bin in our yard this year, but we just couldn’t keep up. The biggest problem we had was remembering to go out and stir it every night…and if you don’t stir it, it stinks! I’ll be giving it another go in the spring though!
