Now I'm going to show Erin mine :)

Here's my compost bins and my fork. I was never able to get the "Little Helper" to pose for a picture with our here it is. The fork was my grandfather's. He passed at 96 and farmed his entire life. I have no idea how old it is.


  1. Great Bins! And that is a great fork with some great gardening history behind it, I bet! And I love your gardens in the background, everything looks very green and lushly growing!

  2. That definitely is an old fork...Wow, i'd have to put it up for safe keeping. I like your bins - they're just right!

  3. MojVrt, Erin & EG: Well, I just took a better look at my fork. It's made of brass! I just took it out of the shed this year. Now that I've been using it for a couple of months you can see that's it's brass. We estimate it's about my age 5Oish. I figured that I better keep in the shed from now on and only bring it out when I need it.

  4. Oh, my. You're one of those people with a real compost bin ;-) I used to have one of those. Back when I had horse poo.

    The fork looks just like mine, but somewhere along the line they went from brass to plastic!
