Feed The Birds & Critters

Our crazy compost pile can't get any traction in the winter months. Compost needs bacteria and bacteria need heat. So in all of the cold, ice, and snow, not much is happening in the way of rotting.

Still, we take that walk out to the pile on the North Lawn almost every day. Those coffee grounds and carrots peels and orange rinds and apple cores get scattered on the snow where they provide pickings for critters.

It's part of the "feed the birds" concept. Maybe that's why these two fawns enjoyed strolling across the lawn on Christmas morning.
