    Trees are great to plant, and different from planting flowers or food in that they make you pause and think in a much more long term life of what you are planting. Its lifespan and growth are on a totally different scale and that is amazing thing to dwell on while putting a tree in its new home.

    I am not new to composting, but am committed to throwing as little away as possible to trash. I am big on gardening at home, so I will use my finished compost (that will be ready later since I just did a harvest of it) on the beds I am planning to plant this upcoming spring.

    A few years ago I started to read a few books about minimalism. Cait Flanders' "The Year of Less" was my favorite in this journey, and connected the dots between de-cluttering and purchasing things that are not needed, thus not being so involved in the consumerism cycle. The less clutter I have, the more I notice I don't need that...

    I was so excited to get to use my first load of finished compost from my home compost bin. I had an area in my yard that needed the soil amended, so I used a mix of top soil and home compost to prepare the bed. The composting subreddit was super helpful for helping me work through a few issues that had to be addressed with my composting awhile...
