You might recall our little experiment where we were attempting to discover if plants could survive in the desert-like conditions of the front porch as a stinky-bin-in-full-sun mitigation strategy.
Three weeks on:
Despite Don’s claims that experiments are not competitions, I’m totally winning!
Meanwhile, I have landed on an interim anti-stinky solution – charcoal bbq bricks in a mesh oranges bag:
We fling it over the inside of the bin and surprisingly (or not – given that charcoal is supposed to absorb smells) it lessens the ghastliness quite a bit.
In other news, school starts back next week – and for the first time in twenty one years, I will not have to purchase school supplies / stationery.
Welcome to the third age, old lady!
