I've been contributing to the composter all winter. I'm waiting for some warm sunshine to start it cooking again. But the bottom door is hiding some really good stuff from last year that I'll be using soon. I have some folks I respect in the composting arena that tell me that egg shells may spread samonilla in the compost. She recommends microwaving the shells for three minutes before tossing them into the compost. Sounds reasonable, and I'd rather be safe.
The snow is covering the daffodils today, but as they bloom in the next week or so, consider sprinkeling an organic fertilizer around the base of each. The bulbs will be gathering energy for next years' blooms as the greens fade, so do not cut off the tops before they turn brown. The extra feed and the natural gathering of nutrition will ensure another great show next year.
What spring has to offer us is priceless - hope, renewal, and satisfaction that we have a hand (albeit, dirty) in this wonderful process.
Share what Spring means to you.
