Except JonTron want composting himself to the victims of lynch mobs, he was comparing modern SJW cunts to lunch mobs. You SJWs will just fucking take anything and run with it won't you

True I forgot about that time when a bunch of rowdy Twitter users broke into JonTrons home and violently murdered him as a public spectacle in order to remind others like him of their social position

When I go to people’s houses who don’t have composts I get so uncomfortable, having to throw food scraps in the trash feels so icky

You are not a complicated little snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all a part of the same compost pile.

Then scooch a little closer to me and let’s decay ~together~

That raw chicken argument is pretty bad. Like, cassava is a staple for 500+ million people and if not prepared properly it can cause paralysis and kill small children. Edible mushrooms are grown on compost and manure. Grains can have ergot, which will cause gangrene or psychosis. etc etc

Fuckin cassava. I love cassave, it’s delicious, but I never learned to cook it because the risk of making myself dead was just a little too high for comfort.

But yes, as you say. There’s plenty of shit that’ll kill you, that isn’t meat. I’d rather eat raw pork than raw cassave, lets put it that way.

i was putting some trashbags in the bins outside and all of a sudden a raccoon used its head to open the compost bin right next to me and it just peeked out and made eye contact for like 10 seconds and then ran away OMG it was so little and cute

uh! since school starts tomorrow im gonna make a list of nice things i did this summer:
- went to san francisco and met my tumblr friend nell!
- went to my cousin’s house for a week / we get along so well she’s one of my best friends so we were laughing the whole time
- i went on a very nice hike in the mountains up above the treeline that was nice
- i lived on a kibbutz for three and a half weeks and it was honestly the best experience of my life like everyone there was so amazing and i made friends and rode a horsie and learned how to compost and work in a garden and just… the friends i made there mad e me so happy and i miss it so much it was the best three and a half weeks of my life and i learned so much ! like! while i was there i made some progress in starting to love and accept myself and live a happier life and yeah aw how nice .
!
- ok yeah i think thats it for all the big things but i also hung out with my older brother a little which was so nice i love seeing him. i also read a few really good books! and bought two plants! ok l

Hugelkultur

Hugelkultur, meaning “hill culture” in German, is a method of raised bed gardening that uses decaying wood as a basis for building up a berm. Berms are useful in directing the flow of water, and protecting more delicate plants from prevailing wind damage.

For this simple hugelkultur garden, I have piled sticks and wood, covered them in compost, planted my shrubs, and mulched the resulting berm first with a layer of newspapers, and second with a layer of wood chips. 

As the wood breaks down, it will create a rich soil with plenty of air pockets, allowing for excellent drainage and root penetration for the plants planted in the mound.

Hugelkultur raised beds are a form of “no-dig” garden (like the straw bale gardens) making them a good choice for those with impaired mobility or strength. They also sequester carbon, and provide a handy use for all of the trimmings from pruning and hedge maintenance.

My yard has poor drainage, so building up the soil is the only sustainable way to utilise the space without creating a pond. Hugelkultur beds provide exceptional drainage for plants that don’t like “wet feet” (ie. waterlogged root systems).
