Compost Bin and Seed Starter

Our mini-compost bin continues to work great. We should, by all indications, have a decent amount of compost to use in the Spring. I've also discovered that it serves as a very effective, albeit unintentional, seed starter. Every couple of days when I go out to stir the bin's contents, I find numerous little seedlings. These are obviously growing from discarded tomatoes, peppers, etc. Maybe I should transplant one or two into pots just to see what happens.

I think it would be worth a try. You never know.

I agree. Try it!

My parents spread their compost around last spring and had tomatos popping up all over. LOL

If nothing actually produces fruit you'll still have good blog fodder. :)
