Home is Where the Cover Material Is

I envy the cover material at this place!

Leaves, pine needles (don’t need a lot), dead grass, etc…

I was asked to build up a fresh pile, so I added a good 12″ of base material, then added the food scraps followed by another 6″ of cover materials.

While I doubt it will start up since it’s 20 degrees out, as soon as it’s ready it’ll take off.  In the meantime, there’s a few months’ room for weekly contributions until the temperature stays above freezing for a few days.

I’m sure we’ll get our January burst of 70 degree weather for a day out of nowhere, anyway…
