My birthday was Wednesday and I turned 55. I don’t know what the typical 55 year old wants for their birthday, if there even is such a thing, but I do know what I wanted and what I got! I have been eyeing composters for about 5 years now. I even wanted to start a composting pile a number of years back. I just was stumped by how I was going to mix the compost pile. Just looks like back breaking work. It wasn’t until I found one of these upright ones, which sets on a stand, well off the ground and can be spun by the handles on the side, that I figured out how to bypass the back breaking limitations that kept giving me so much pause. So when my birthday was coming around this year, I knew just what I wanted! I wanted the Rolls Royce of composters, of course! Fortunately, the boxes, shipped through Amazon’s prime, arrived the day before my birthday, in time for me to arrange to have John, our handy man, put it together. I was so happy having John out back assembling the darn thing, while the boys buzzed about. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ME!
You see it all fits in with my core value that you have to give back to the earth and you must actively work at in the spring and the fall. What is cool about the Composter is that it will allow me to pursue this purpose and passion throughout the entire year. I will be working on creating “black gold” year round. The more black gold I help to create, the greater my bounty from my own garden. And not for nothin, the produce will be more nutritious for my family too!
