A very blessed Christmas to you!
It’s been an awesome week for Joe and I as we celebrate Christmas with our loved ones. Indeed, nothing can beat the special warmth that Christmas time brings. Even the season’s tunes that fill the air in the streets and malls remind us that tis the season to be jolly!
Here’s one of my favourite Christmas songs. 🙂
We’re also thankful for another reason to be jolly: My family’s just moved into a new place!
I kid you not, living at our new home now is soooo much better. It’s definitely larger (from a 4-room to 5i-room flat) and we’re now located on the ground floor for the first time.
Not only that, we’ve got plenty of recess area just outside our home, and I know my dad’s just itching to get his green fingers down to work. He’s even got a banana tree planned for. 😉
Admittedly, our compost bins have been underused since we moved. Because of unpacking and settling down at our new home, we haven’t had the chance to place the bins at our most ideal location yet.
Right now, you can see that they are located at a considerable distance from the kitchen. So throwing kitchen scraps into the compost bins would require a fair amount of maneuvering and walking.
As much as possible, we’d like to stick to the simplest aim-for-the-bin method. Based on the pictures above, we could actually place the compost bins next to our kitchen window. (Another perk of living on the ground floor with lots of recess area!)
As aforementioned in our previous entries, we’re also planning to try vermicomposting (worm composting). My dad’s really excited to start this hobby, as he has read and heard so much about vermicomposting before.
Besides, which gardening hobbyist wouldn’t want a few creepers to play with whilst churning fertiliser for his plants? 🙂
More about our worm composting plans in the next post!
