Day 60 of self-isolation.
Over the years, I’ve spent so much money and time buying soil at the hardware store. I’m also constantly removing Japanese Knot-Weed and other various evasive weeds from my backyard that I’d just leave in a fire pit. The pile is so high right now, I decided I should start composting.
Since I’ve been cooking and making coffee a lot at home, I figured I should use the leftovers (egg shells, veggie cuttings, and coffee grounds) as fuel for the compost — in addition to the weed and grass cuttings. The other day, I went to the hardware store to get a large storage bin, in which I drilled way too many holes into, and today my friend gave me a bunch of worms.
I tossed them all together, plus some of the soil and roots from dead plants and wood shavings you’d use for small pet cages, so here’s hoping I have some great fertilizer in the next month or so. My next manly-man project will be creating a wood casing for the compost bin, and integrate it so the container matches with my backyard garden.
