Finished Composter

I cannot believe we were able to finish building the composter today.  Well, I shouldn't really say 'we' so much as 'my husband' haha.  We threw our first few scraps in there this afternoon :D  So it starts!

Nothing but vegetables (and a few herbs!)

"A vegetable garden in the beginning looks so promising and then after all little by little it grows nothing but vegetables, nothing, nothing but vegetables." Gertrude Stein
I find that quote so hilarious.  Oh my do I have an update for you!

First up: Basil Cutting
I didn't really believe that this little experiment would work, but I've been changing the basil water every day or two and am seeing roots forming (gasp) right where they should be!  In the next few days I'll get these babies into the ground.  Actually, strike that, I'm thinking of taking the thyme in my SFG, basil that you see here, and some mint my dad just gave me and planting them in the rectangular terracotta flowerpot(s) J bought me.  This way I can bring them inside during the winter and have fresh herbs throughout the winter!  Wouldn't that be delightful?
