TO COMPOST OR NOT TO COMPOST



I like to compost. It think it is just one of the many earth friendly things that are out there that I can do.
This is what you do: You take those peelings and spoiled fruits and vegetables you have and mix them with last year's rotting leaves and let them become compost. Here's the problem. What if there is a snake in your leaf bin, all curled up in the warm, soft, moist, rotting leaves? What if when you reach in to get some leaves to add to your compost bin, that you don't see him because his wonderful coloring blends in so well with the leaves? What if you spot him later only inches away from where your hand had been? Will you (or will I for that matter) ever reach your hand into that bin again? And how can one make compost without rotting leaves?
