one time my sister went to like a field trip thing at school to a farm and they were explaining like the dirt compost cycle or something and this guy comes out dressed like a half worm half obi kenobi and starts yelling ‘HELLO KIDS !!!! i am obi worm kenobi’ and i think abt that everyday
Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheesemakers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can’t put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better. ― Erin Bow
I know I’m quite a bit late, but this was my parent’s Christmas gift to me! A compost tumbler, which is going to be painted black very soon. There are holes for air to pass through and long nails to break apart the compost when it’s being turned. When it’s all ready to be used up in the garden, we just roll a wheel barrel underneath, open up the door and shovel out what we need:) it’s super neat and I cannot wait to put it to use!
