I have a really great vintage book called "The How And Why Wonder Book of Insects". Can’t remember where it came from, but I think it once belonged to my older sister – who was a kid in the sixties. The price on the book is 59 cents! I find that the more popular that online books become, the more protective I am of printed books. I love them! How they feel in my hand, the experience of reading, the turning of the pages – I am not a fan of online books, hurts my eyes and the experience is not the same. Needless to say, I really struggled when deciding if I wanted to cut up the insect book for the greater good of mail art. Even though I had never read the book and likely kept it for the purpose of an art project, I felt very conflicted. Finally decided that it would just collect dust if I left it. Better to use it and put it’s content out into the world of mail art. So this is the first card using the book’s lovely illustrations. Sending it to my friend’s mother, who is lovely in her own right.

More than you needed to know about my internal struggles over book preservation. Thanks for listening!

A Home-Made Urban Compost Bin

A Home-Made Urban Compost Bin

I live in a city row-home with limited back yard space. I love to garden and wanted to find an inexpensive compost maker. After a long search I came upon directions to make a nifty homemade one.

Materials:

Rubbermaid 35 qt (or size appropriate for garden.) storage container with tight fitting lid.

Extra Newspaper

Sharp Knife

“Browns” such as dead leaves, brown grass clippings, wood chips, shredded newspaper, pine needles

“Greens” such as coffee grounds, vegetable peelings, plant clippings, teabags and wool

Directions:

1. Turn the container over and cut some holes in the bottom for drainage. Don’t go crazy. You want enough for drainage but not enough for the compost to fall out.

2. Cut a couple of holes on each side and one or two in the top to allow the compost to breath.

3. Rip up your extra newspaper and place in the bottom of the container. The pieces should be no more than an inch wide. Fill the container about 6″ with the newspaper.

4. All your “browns go into the container next. Your container should be 1/3 full after adding the browns.

5. Cover your browns with your greens. Make sure to leave some room at the top of the container.

6. Water the compost, but don’t drown it. You want it just damp. If you need to keep it on a deck, you can add and extra lid on the bottom for drainage.

7. Be patient. Wait.

8. After about three weeks, take the lid off and turn the compost well. Do this every 3-4 weeks.

9. Keep adding to your compost material

10. In 6-8 months you should have good earthy compost to use!

Some things to remember:

Do not put meat scraps into the compost.

Don’t use compost for inside plants, as the compost is not considered sterile.

Do not put diseased plants into the compost.

I love being a city-dweller and knowing I can produce my own garden compost.

Closing ‘Baby’ back up after some weekend maintenance. Still a little dusty, but 3M duster spray bittering agent is unbearable. Yeah, she’s got some good parts inside 🙂
