Sunday wonders - A

A is for Alchemy.


Turning waste to garden gold starts here in this stainless steel bucket which collects our veggie peels and similar leavings.

This then gets dumped in the composter and covered in grass clippings and old leaves...


Where heat, time and what seems like a million worms turn it into marvellous muck...


Which results in delicious food for us to eat.  These little rhubarb leaves, new and wrinkled will grow tall and sturdy with this feeding.

A good post for spring! Interesting that it takes yuckky, bad stuff to make new growth start. Kind of like life, isn't it?

Alchemy is a perfect word to describe what happens here!

Jane said...

I agree with Rudee. Perfect description!

Mimi said...

Wonderful! You've started again...bit like the cycle of alchemy, this alphabet thing of yours!
Stephanie, I haven't forgotten about your tag, just haven't had time to do it well, but this week will see it posted. Thanks for being so patient.

It does seem like alchemy, doesn't it? Nice to see the rhubarb coming up!

Joanna said...

Oh boy! Another round of ABCs. I love what you come up with for these Stephanie.

that's great! We can't really compost where we live right now, but have done it in the past. Good stuff! and rhubarb, yum!

you have a very up market compost bucket. I use a plastic bucket. Do you use worms too?
