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.

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…
