It's a Com-post!
A beautiful thing, just not visually.
The semi-buried compost barrels make gorgeous compost. Not fast, no huge amounts, but goooood. The barrel and lid retain moisture in our dry dry climate. The bottom of the barrels are cut out so the material is exposed to soil, which provides access for microbes and earthworms. Being half-buried, the barrels can't fall over. I tossed the precious finished compost around my favorite roses in anticipation of rain in a few days.
Boris anticipates a toss of the tennis ball. Natasha continues to trim the right side of his face.
Throw the ball.
Natasha is bored. She's not particularly interested in tennis balls.
Throw it again.
Sigh. Boys and their toys.
