The Little Red Hen Loves Compost


“The compost bin is full and no one can be found to empty it,” said my mother-in-law.


It bothers me to encumber the municipal garbage disposal system with compostables and also I had made several piles of vegetation by tidying up the irises so I got busy and dug out the rich dark treasure.


There were some composting errors…

…and some composting prizes!


I chose beds to be the lucky recipients, starting with the rose still flowering, blessing us with its perfume, and continued on above where it looked like mostly weeds were growing.  There should be bulbs in there so I didn’t fork it over, just scratched a bit.

There is something I find so fulfilling about compost, even though this work may benefit an unknown person since the house may soon be sold.  It’s hard to let go of a place that has been part of my life for 34 years where many happy moments have been shared.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
