Hi everyone! Apologies for the lack of posts lately. Things have been extremely busy on the work front. I am happy to report that things are going to change this fall! I’ll be focusing much more on my various online eco-endeavours! I’m the type of person who feels strongly about pursuing one’s passions in life – so I’ve decided to really start taking my own advice!
I just thought I would pop by today for a bit of an RWC update. Certainly some interesting things to report on these days.
As you can see in the picture above, my outdoor compost bin is surrounded by a jungle of green! If I had provided some support for my compost tomato plants you probably wouldn’t be able to see the bin at all!
I spotted my first ripe tomatoes yesterday. Despite the incredibly rapid growth of these plants in general, they have be somewhat slower to produce ripe fruit than those in my tomato garden (of course, the fact that that they got started more than a month later, and receive less sunlight MAY have something to do with that!). I sampled one and it was tasty!
Aside from a jungle of tomato plants, a monstrous catnip plant (the biggest I’ve ever seen) has also been growing beside the composter as well. The picture below doesn’t do it justice, primarily due to the fact that a proper view is being blocked by the sunflowers in front of it! Those sunflowers are actually some of the spare seedlings from my Terracycle Challenge (more on that in a minute), and after a very slow start have managed to completely dwarf all those grown in pots (for the challenge).
For those of you who were left wondering what on earth ever became of the challenge, I apologize for not providing any updates here! I ended up providing challenge coverage on the EcoSherpa blog. Be sure to check out my latest update (also the final wrap-up) for all the details:

Ok, well I think that’s all I’ve got for now! Be sure to stay tuned – much more to come!
