We had such high hopes. We really can't blame ourselves for this first attempt gone awry, what with the insane rains this winter. But we think the little seedings might have survived if the backyard wildlife hadn't inhaled our helpless plants. Apparently the budding leaves of sweet peas and broccoli are bonbons for the ravenous rascals. While we hatch the plans for a Fort Knox-style garden bed for spring planting, we're busying ourselves with learning how to compost.
We scored a bin from the Alameda Compost Program and sat through the riveting (dead serious...) video, Do the Rot Thing.
We'll keep the updates coming and let you know how the decomposing goes. In the meantime, get your own discounted bin here to join in and do the "rot thing"!
