The husks and silk went into the compost. Oops, looks like I accidently threw some rat toys in there with some bedding. I don’t do much with the compost, and we haven’t removed any fresh compost to put on the garden. I started the compost when I read that 30% of landfills are garden and kitchen waste. Please, if you like me at all, don’t throw your organic waste in the trash! This modest little compost pile is about 3 feet square and it has saved numerous square feet of stinky landfill.
One of my tiny gardens, out next to the driveway.
In this bed: Left, rhododendron azalea.
Middle, honeysuckle that I have been slashing at for years
Right two, creeping phlox (pink and lavender)
Right background, Blue fescue
And of course no flower bed is complete without a statue of a dog carrying a purse.
