‘Quarantined’ for old age, I can still get out and start with the spring chores. It’s unusually early. The dirt is drying out and warming up, so I might as well work with the compost.

5 piles have been fermenting for 2 years and ready to spread out on the vegetable patches.

There are 4 more to put out.

Then there are 5 already fermenting for next year and new ones to make as space becomes available.
