Get soiled

Compost WeekI’m not sure if @hotpepper is aware that it’s National Composting Awareness Week, where people are made aware of composting. He was reveling in how great the snow was for his shit pile, so I’m dedicating this post to him.

In case you’ve been living in a void:

Composting is an important way to recycle — both at home and at work, where organic material is used and waste is created. It is estimated that about 50 percent of the total waste stream could be composted! Composting not only helps to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills, it produces a valuable soil amendment which can improve the texture and fertility of the soil.

Unfortunately, I live in a condo and don’t have a backyard for a compost heap, so I’ll at least do a small part and not flush my toilet this week. Maybe I can grow some mushrooms.

Plenty of hoes at the Home & Garden Trade Show

See what I did there? I used my mad rapper skills and came up with a fresh rhyme. Speaking of fresh, there’s nothing quite like biting into fresh-grown horseradish. It’s hot, like these beats.

If you’re into gardening and interior design, like me, check out the Home & Garden Trade show:

Guests to the show can find a variety of exhibitors, ranging from flooring and cabinets to hot tubs and fireplaces to landscapers and greenhouses, and much more. It’s the largest Home and Garden show in Southern Alberta, and the variety of products is almost endless!

The show runs March 25 – 28 at Lethbridge Exhibition Park. Tickets are $5.
