Composting to extreme!

Hello friends!  I have a really exciting “invention” that I want to share with you all today.  I’m fascinated by composting.  The whole process just intrigues me. I mean, you put a whole bowl full of organic food waste into a compost bin and a few weeks later, there’s nothing but dirt! I just find that amazing..anyone else?

Anyway, I found a crazy suped up composter on Kickstarter.  This thing looks kinda ridiculous and it’s not on the market yet but when it does become available….it’s gonna be a game changer. Check this puppy out!

Worms…

Hello, hello!  How’s everyone doing today?  I hope your great!  I’m doing well and finally feeling caught up with things…at least for the moment. =)

So last week we were getting some fall weather.  It was glorious! Temperatures were in the 70’s and cool at night.  It was GREAT!!!  (*seriously, I hate being hot and sweating!) I was so hopeful that the amazing weather would stick around I decided to order some little redworms to help my compost pile!  These little guys are a huge help in breaking down the compost fast but they are also a little picky with temperatures – as they can get a over heated or freeze if it’s cold.

I think I jumped the gun and purchased my little friends a bit early because the temps went back up into the 100’s right after I received my little guys in the mail.

TGIF!  Woohoo!  It’s Fri-YAY! =)  Hope you have fun plans this weekend.  I’ve gotta get in a semi-long training run in and catch up on some work.  (did I mention I’m running Austin Marathon in 3 week?) Other than that I plan to relax!  I need some down time after this busy busy week.

Today’s topic is on composting! =) Are you all as excited as I am??? I’m sure you are…and if not just roll with it today. =)

Composting

Hello and happy Monday!  Hope you had a fantastic weekend!  Today we’re going to discuss composting.  Yes, I have a composting toilet but this is more about composting in general.  Why am I bringing this up you ask? Well, there is a conference (yes, I’m not joking!) in September on this very thing.  Apparently it’s quite popular. =)

I want to go to this but have to work that morning and don’t think a half day will be worth the trip. =(  Anyways, back to what I do for my composting and my little friends, the worms.
