Gardening is my other passion. It's sort of funny that I'd share this Heavenly Blue morning glory photo from my garden here, because morning glories are absolutely the easiest, most-not-in-need-of-any-gardening-skill-whatsoever sort of plant. But I love this photo from last summer, and in fact, this is what I use as my background wallpaper on my work computer.
This is the space where I'll share some of my gardening news, including composting. Because I really, really love composting. Really.
Here is the compost tumbler I use. It really does cook up useable compost in a matter of weeks during warm weather. I toss all my garden clippings in it, along with vegetable peels, coffee grounds, and ripped-up cardboard egg cartons from the kitchen. At the beginning of every summer, I add in a bucket of well-aged horse manure from a local horse-boarding place. That really gets things cooking. I turn it several times a week and use the fabulous compost for planting, top-dressing, and brewing up compost tea.
