Happy Earth Day! Composting is finally cool.
As a child I grew up with a compost bucket in the sink. There was a strict protocol of where glass, metal, paper and of course organic material was to be put. It was also my job to run this little stinky bucket out to the compost pile. I really hated compost and the entire process of composting. It was an embarrassment when friends came over. I longed to throw things away in the trash like everyone else.
I never thought the day would come when I would long to compost.
That day has arrived. I saw the most impressive kitchen composter on television last night. It turned simple table scraps into beautiful loamy soil.
Summing it up with the most appropriate cliche I can think of "even a worm turns".
