Yucky Gross or Isn’t Nature Wonderful or Don’t Sit There

The lawn furniture has been neglected again.  It does sit in the back corner of the wooded area where it is somewhat swampy and full of mosquitos in the summer.  And that is the excuse for not keeping it clean.

Under the leaves was a nice pile of compost.  You might wonder how it composted so nicely.

The leaves had help of course!  So how did the worm get up the chair to a pile of leaves and why?  Don’t know and don’t want to know. Yuck! The worm and the compost were returned to the earth and someday the chairs will be cleaned.

    Save that tiny batch of compost! You’ve got a thriving ecosystem on the patio furniture, you should be proud.

    My girlfriend is actively afraid to stick her fingers in the dirt of my garden for fear of touching a worm. I’m trying to get her over that. Touching healthy soil with bare hands has been proven to give you nutrients which elevate mood and promote a healthy immune system.

    Get dirty y’all!

  2. I must be a lizard kind of a girl as well. What is aggravating about situations like that is – if you had been trying to make compost it probably wouldn’t have worked!

  3. Worm-approved compost! 🙂

    Great to see such a nice bit of compost having formed on you garden furniture. A bit like part of my tiny front garden which has a small tree in it giving an enormous amount of leaves, they too are decaying nicely right now.

    Ha! I’ve had something similar happen in the past. Well, the furniture will get cleaned when it’s important and you did a good thing with the worm and the compost. It seems like a children’s book is in there somewhere….

    Making compost on your garden chairs is quite novel. I never thought of that. But why not? I hardly ever get round to sitting on them.

  7. Made me smile: “Don’t know and don’t want to know. Yuck!” I’ve had that reaction on several occasions, though not about worms; usually something else in the garden or the woods.
