This is what my compost looks like these days. A friend of my neighbor's brought over a huge garbage bag of Starbuck's coffee grounds--apparently they give them to anyone who asks--so I added that and water and stirred it up a bunch and I think it's going to be superfertile in there now. I want some of the scraps I throw in there to sprout seeds. Then I get free plants.

Those vines I planted (passionflower and wild honeysuckle) to beautify it are slowly coming back to life. Here's the passionflower. Probably the latest freeze killed it, but now I'm pretty sure it'll bounce back.

It's going to take a while, but by God I will have a vine-covered compost heap with pretty flowers eventually!
