Thursday Challenge: Messy

compost heap with mums, orange peels, cabbage, leek
My compost heap: every now and then I do cover it with dirt.

Thursday Challenge theme is MESSY (Children, Rooms, Garage, Yard, Disorganized, Hair,…). Next week is CRAFTS (Supplies, Knitting, Crocheting, Woodworking, Pottery, Painting,…).

The end result is tremendously useful.
Great post.

Snow Leopard says

But it is a good mess. It will change into useful and organic compost. :)

Thoughtful Randomness says

Makes me cringe to look at it, but it will metamorphose into something useful..

Nice pick for the theme.

Monika says

Jew Wishes says

What a great study in tones and texture blends.

Ilana-Davita says

Very Autumn-like in colors and textures. You are the only person I know who can turn compost into art without creating something weird.

Nicole says

It sure makes for an artsy shot :D

Michelle says

Gee...really...that is all you have to do..I wonder if I could do this or would it attract the raccoon and fox we already have visiting...

Leora says

Make sure not to put in any meat or chicken. I don't think the animals like the compost; however, the birds do. They just peck at it! And you should cover it with dirt - not that I do this often enough
