Maggots in the compost, dude.
Undulating, writhing, freakish machines of compost.
My friend, neighbor, and fellow urban farmer Lorri and I are digging into the vermicompost world.
She - intentionally. Me - maggots in my compost.
I am half repulsed and half absolutely fascinated by them.
They remind me of the little green magical worms that James spills under the peach tree.
(FinnigantheCurious and I spent close to an hour talking about how much we wished they were. Sigh. Literary longing is the best/worst.)
Have you ever put an avocado rind in your compost?
Goes nowhere ever, right?
GONE with the maggots.
I shit you not! (That's a compost pun, y'all.)
Plus the chikkins LOVE them.
I scoop out a big bowl full, plop it on the ground, and you should see them come running.
Chikkins do run, you know, and it is one hilarious site to see.
It's the no arms thing, I think, that is so funny.
Next time you're out running (HA HA HA) put your arms down by your side and don't move them.
This maggot article is really funny too:
Grab a big bowl of oatmeal and do some maggot reading.
HA HA HA.
On a happier note, I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who chimed in on the door color!!!
That was really immensely helpful to have other brains at work with mine. Really, really.
I am now officially torn between apricot/peach and, thanks to Ms. Mudd, painting it in stripes of ALL the mentioned colors!!!
Holy shit, that was SO not the plan.
The plan was to calm the area down. Soothe it. Not magnify it!
But just think ... stripes of red, eggplant, lavender, peach, butter yellow, more green!
Wouldn't that be the bomb?
I might just do it!!
Maybe I could do it in muted color stripes and that would be less busy?
HA HA HA.
Well, I am going to find the fabric first. I did see the sanity in that.
Course, if I paint it stripes I don't really see how I can put a piece of fabric there too because then my head really would look like that bin of maggots.
Maybe a clean roll-up blind if I do the stripes?
I think I'll tackle it this weekend and just see.
I can always paint over it. Again.
Apples with no worms, of course.
