Between all the coffee grounds and other kitchen scraps, we've filled up one half of this tumbler pretty fast. We've also thrown in some dried leaves and some old potting soil.

Anyone use a compost tumbler? We used to have a more conventional compost pile, but didn't have enough material to fill it, and it kept getting destroyed by wild animals. A month or so ago, we bought a Yimby Tumbler. It's filling up nicely, and it seems to break down material much faster.

Turns out I was too early. I had a good start thanks to global warming on tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers started a month ago, then 20 minutes of 1-2" hail wiped it all out. All new flowers in pots gone as well. On the bright side, I should be getting a new roof and skylights.

 
Yikes! Hope you can claim the flower pots and everything else on the insurance. Is it replacement value insurance? Ask them to pay for the super advanced tomatoes at the garden centre.{#Good-vibes}

we pulled up all the carrots that were overwintering in the garden. HOLY CRAP! it was a good year for carrots. I would guess about 50 lbs, 3 big trugs full.
good thing we got the new freezer last year. Now I have to blanch as much as I can and find room in the fridge for the rest.

I am 2 weeks late starting the seeds this year.
and I still have to plant the onion sets. I'm a little late on that too.

This past October, while sloppily moving into my parent's home after my mom fell, I came across some acorn squash and honey-dew melon seeds I saved from eating and a half-empty package of Spinach seeds. I casually tossed them over near an area where mom would sometimes have a little 3x3' swiss chard winter garden and considered it a 'WTF' garden. A couple of houseplants managed to die in transit, so I dumped the dirt over the seeds.
