We're preparing our backyard for a garden next year, which means we've started our compost piles! All of our weeds, table scraps (that aren't good for the livestock), chicken and rabbit poop, go into our compost pile. We keep the pile wet and turn the pile about once a week. Next spring we should have a fair amount of compost; it seems odd that I'm completely excited about compost. Joe has mentioned how excited he is about compost as well. I'm fascinated with the concept and love that what I feed my small livestock literally goes back into the ground through composting. Hey, does this mean if I become a vegetarian I can compost my poop too! ;)
A great ingredient for compost!

As Joe was turning the compost it smelled good!
It smelled like dirt!
