csa thurs

these cool temperatures have been very good to the spinach. leaves are large and still savoy. (i think thats the word for the texture of the leaves.) last of the somewhat misshapen greenhouse lettuce - next week we go outdoors for the lettuce. new stuff next week - more of the same tonight. barb was cleaning the eggs last night and said the shells are thin which means i need to go get some more crushed oyster shells to feed them. still very good for your compost pile. If you dont have a compost pile i highly recommend one. i hear some people say they dont want one because it will attract raccoons - a small price to pay for compost from garbage. forget the tumblers.....just put it right on the ground so worms can enter it.

keep meat out of the compost and you'll have no raccoon worries. and we're no strangers to raccoons around here.

btw, our cat door with the rfid tags and two way locking has stymied the raccoons from eating the cat food in the basement.
