So, I officially started composting back in April of 2010 when my husband grudgingly bought me a big compost tumbler for my birthday. He refused to build me a big bin because he claimed various wildlife would flock to our little yard and spew banana peals across the patio.
Well, it worked. He bought me a big old tumbler which is currently so heavy I cannot turn it by myself without pulling a muscle (and I work out!). Here is a picture of the current contents. Stinky. Lily runs for cover when I open it up.
However, now that I HAVE compost I am left wondering…when do I empty it? And most importantly, where? Yesterday I decided the bin was too full and rolled up my sleeves to shovel some out into random flower beds. In the midst of my scooping, I came across…the blue bits of the STILL-decomposing SunChips bag!! I had to pick them out with my bare hands. Ugh. SunChips, you did us wrong. It’s been months and months! Good thing I only tried to put one bag in there. You can see the bright blue bits in the picture below.
