Our Green Day
One of the perks of living in our town would definitely be the afternoon breeze we get almost every Summer evening. No need for an air conditioner here! We had one but parted with it a few days ago. It was an old dinosaur of an air conditioner - energy sucking and freon leaking and unsightly to say the least. In it's spot sits our new composter. Not only will we be reducing the volume of garbage needlessly sent to landfills but we will be hopefully creating what most gardeners refer to as "black gold" Our daughter Maggie was very excited this morning to be the first one to throw in a bowl of cucumber peels, orange rinds, egg shells and onion peels. She understands the process which is pretty cool (she's 7) apparently they are composting at school :) I sure hope we have success with this without creating any offensive smells or attracting any unwanted critters (we do live by a creek as you may know) Wish us luck!
