I’ve had the dorkiest idea.
You’ve probably heard about Knit-Alongs, where people get together online and knit the same project together in small steps over a set period of time?
Well, not everybody knits. Even if you do knit, maybe you’ve set down your needles for the summer.
I thought of another usually solitary activity that we could do together, step by step, sharing our progress, tribulations, and finally our results.
How about . . .
Are those crickets?
All right, I know decomposing waste may not be everyone’s idea of a fun summertime activity, but if you’re a garden dork like me, or you’ve been meaning to start composting for a while and you need a little push and some support to get going, this could be . . . almost a little bit fun (???). Rewarding? Educational? A way to help keep you out of trouble?
Here’s the set up:
- If you want to join in, declare your intentions in the comments section of this post.
- Then, every week I’ll post a new composting “assignment” for us to complete over the course of that week.
- As we compost together, report on your progress, either in the comments section or, if you have a blog, you can link in comments to a post where you discuss your compost issues.
- In 8 weeks, we’ll all show off our compost.
I just said “show off our compost.”
To spice things up, not that we’ll need it with all that exciting decomposition going on, we’ll have a couple of giveaways along the way. I think a composting book would be lovely, and, if we can stand ourselves, maybe a composting thermometer.
Katie bar the door.
Are you up to the challenge?
