It’s A Regular Sanitation Serenade

“Oh, I love trash!
Anything dirty or dingy or dusty
Anything ragged or rotten or rusty
Yes, I love trash

Man oh man do I ever love composting.  Really it’s so cool!!!!!!  My friend asked me last night “what exactly do you like about composting … the smell?”  True it does smell, but it’s so interesting to watch how things decompose.  I stir my compost.  I water my compost.  And as you’ve seen above I even photograph my compost.

But unfortunately the compost won’t be ready for my veggies this summer so I had to improvise.  This morning I made my own fertilizer or as I like to call it – a trash smoothie!

First I started by making myself a smoothie with spinach, pineapple, frozen mango, banana, orange juice, and hemp protein powder.

Then I started on my trash smoothie …

Morgan’s homemade fertilizer:

  • a weeks worth of coffee grounds
  • a couple heaping tablespoons of wood ash
  • starchy water from boiling pasta

Yahooooooo, it was so exciting!  I spread it around in all my pots and then gave them a really good and deep watering to make it through the heat today.

Also – I noticed that I have green beans.  I was so hung up on the leaves on this plant because it’s really where the slugs have been going crazy that I didn’t even notice this bounty.


Any other trash lovers out there?
