Dirt

You see dirt outside all the time, don’t know about yours but, mine is slightly gray.  It is full of clay and clumps like no ones business.  You might remember I was trying my hand at the worms again.  Well let me tell you ……..

I am planning some strawberries this summer and am gonna mix this beauty into the soil I plant them in.  Just imagine.

If my dad, mom or brother could see me playing with the dirt they would think I lost my mind.  As a young girl I hated to get dirty.  Now I am all fingernails?  what fingernails I don’t need those. 

I do not have a composter, want one, need one, must consider one, until then this is my compost dirt.

Do you compost?
