“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?
