While waiting on the tomatoes, it was time to clean up the Compost Area.
My daunting task, make the Compost Area blend in with The Barefoot Garden.
Remember the pile of sod I had removed from the planting area?
This is the Compost Area at its, worst.
So I planted Watermelon…One way to keep the weeds down…
After laying the cardboard covered in straw, I moved the Mushroom Soil to the pile of sod.
An old Galvanized Can is used for kitchen scraps. With the holes punched in the sides and lid, it allows airflow and moisture to aid in the decomposition of the waste. Turning veggie scraps it into Black Gold.
At the base of my Kitchen Scrap Bin Creeping Charlie was thriving.
The leaf in the center is “normal” compared to the one behind it. The larger leaf was positioned to receive the run off from the kitchen scraps. Nourishment at its finest. Imagine what those fruits and veggies do for you. What I learned from my Creeping Charlie…
I almost forgot, Look what we have…A baby Sugar Baby Watermelon…
