    We have one of these little composers where we dump all of our household compost that the missus mixes in with leaves, grass etc. This is an old pic but you can see a pile of compost behind it. She typically has 3 piles going at all times each one a different year, by 3 years old it's generally good to go. We'll have chicken manure pretty quick too which she plans to do a special compost pile for. She's a hard working girl!

    You can see a pile here behind where the greenhouse is now

    How does her compost cycle work, when the Toy Box is full does she lift it out and plants it somewhere else? And adds to it while the Toy Box is refilled with compostables?

    She'll empty it onto whichever compost pile is about the same progress and mix it in then the cycle begins again. When it comes out of the bin it's not broken down enough yet to use.

    How long is your growing season there?

    Some stuff goes in the ground after May 24 weekend but June is safer for frost. We tend to have decent temperatures into October. I think the majority of growing happens in July and August.

    We just had the coldest July on record and a lot of things were late coming up, the missus tells me that it got hot in August and the garden just exploded. I haven't been home in 3 weeks to see it.

    We used the same method for years. Moved stuff from the composter in the Spring to the adjacent compost pit when it thawed out. Excellent potting soil and good supply of worms for fishing.

    I don’t fish but the missus says we are 6B for growing zone.

    Milling up wood means you get the odd interesting planks like this one that I sliced to make 2 live edge shelves for the coffee nook.

    Looking a lot more like a coffee nook now.

    I know this shot is literally a stone's throw from your Newfoundland Two Wheel Inn and Campground.
    How do you sleep at night? LOL

    You grow up with it, so you are used to it. Many will say the sound of the waves would lull them to sleep

    That shot is not close to me, I would recognize the shore line but I love the sound of the waves. I can often hear them roaring in my bedroom window.

    Got in my ride for the Distinguished Gentelmans Ride, raised a few $$ for prostate cancer and men's mental health. Stopped in at Red Head Cove for a photo.

    I was wondering if your chickens will be vacationing in your deep freeze during winter?
