a quick trip

With our nights in the 20s and days in the 30s, I was feeling like visiting a warm, relaxing place.  Maybe two.  So I headed out to the compost pile and experimental outdoor worm bed.

Ahhh.  First stop, the worms.  Sunny and warm with highs in the mid-seventies.  The sunken water bucket warmed with a 25w aquarium heater seems to be holding its own against the cold.  Hopefully the worms are too.

Then off to Fabulous Compostapulco.  Those Starbucks grounds I picked up last week are having a party with my moist, shredded fall leaves, and things are heating up!

What a vacation.  I’m pooped.  Now for a siesta.

  1. Wow, that’s some happy happy thermophilic bacteria happening there. Talk about a coffee buzz! I’m amazed Dan, and you said the lows were in the twenties. Very impressive.
