It's about 5:20 a.m. and the compost pile only came up to 70 degrees. This is not hot. So I guess the next step is the bunny poo tea. Or should I just nuke it with everything I thought of using yesterday and hope for the best? The pile is right next to the bunny pen and they may not like the smell of ammonia in the morning. I think I am in the first stage of grief - denial.

What do you do at 5:20 in the morning? Does it involve wind-up flashlights and a bathrobe? Do the neighbors think you are crazy?

Keep Middle Monkey in your prayers. He has the flu.


  1. Usually at that time of the morning I'm just thinking about crawling out of bed.

  2. I'm not even thinking about it. Throw a lot of nitrogen at it, and it should heat up, but I don't worry about it too much. I'm kind a throw the compost together and let it be kind of gal.~~Dee

  3. It is several days later. I still keep getting up at weird times. The compost is now only 60 degrees. When it dryes out we will tear it apart and start over.
