I was reading newspapers in the living room, when my dad walked by. While he was opening the gate to leave for work, he chuckled and said,
“I ate a lime and threw the unwanted seeds into our compost bin. Instead of composting, they are growing into plants!”
Immediately, I got up from the sofa and peeked into one of the bins. Indeed, there are two young seedlings with the freshest, brightest, greenest leaves I’ve ever seen!
My fiance Joseph couldn’t help but slap his forehead with amusement. He said, “Of course the seeds will be growing in compost!”
My brother Eliah finds it intriguing and hilarious too. Curious, both of them paused a (really noisy) zombie Playstation game to check out the bins for themselves.
Like me, there was an inevitable smile on their faces.
After this “unexpected expected discovery”, we’re all just pleasantly surprised by the high potency of our DIY compost. You see, you don’t even need to mix the compost with soil. The plants grow incredibly healthily in compost alone. 🙂
It’s amazing what our trash at home can do for us.
I guess we also should “think twice” before throwing anything into our compost bins. We may just end up with a mini forest in a container! Hehe.
Finally, I’d like to say that the bins have been very convenient for us. Instead of having to walk all the way to the kitchen to dispose of eaten fruit cores, peanut shells etc, we could simply play a mini game of basketball by aiming for the compost bins right outside our door. 😉
