Kids and Compost

Don't turn me in to the labor law folks for putting Nathan (4) to work in the compost heap.

Thanks to Omaha's yard waste recycling program, enormous piles of this sweet-smelling compost are available to the public for about $8 a truckload. Helper Will, and grandson Nathan took turns shoveling "Omagrow" compost into the truck.

We then spread this lovely soil amendment into garden areas in the front yard of the flip house. The butterfly bushes and blue fescue will love living there.

Someday, if we ever get financing to finish the project, new homeowners will love living there too.
