This is real proof virginia is turning blue, they have started to require new developments be more connected. They make it harder to create that anathema of new urbanists; pod neighborhoods. These are neighborhoods which only have single entrances that everyone who lives there has to filter through and thereby mandate car oriented devolpment.

Composting is harder than it looks.

It's really easy in theory, make a pile of vegitation, let it rot, fold it occasionally.

The problem I have is finding a workable rhythm, I find I need to have at least three piles cooking & a fourth building at any one time to keep my interest up and even then I tend turn them too frequently to get them hot enough. It's not easy to get a steady stream of the right material for that much compost, one of the most common leaf options are live oak leaves and they don't compost worth a damn. And in central texas you have to water your piles or they'll dry out.
