Veggie Scrapsicle

We closed off our composter (the blue plastic barrel) to new veggie scraps so that the contents will have a chance to break down and be ready to work into the garden in a month or so.  In the interim, I've been putting all of the banana peels, egg shells, grapefruit halves, and everything else into a 5 gallon bucket. (A bucket with a lid that also happens to have a small hole in the top.) I thought I was being smart, setting the bucket under the roof of the garage. Let me tell you, after a weekend of rain, I realized it was not such a smart idea. 

This is what happens in what is supposed to be spring in Wisconsin.

The weather is rumored to be warming up this weekend.  We may even see 70 by Sunday with a major threat of storms.  Yippee!

You have got to be kidding me - it's 20 degrees warmer there?!

Too funny. Hope it does warm up for you.

I am not surprised, sadly. It has been so much colder than usual. The spout of our rainbarrel (which was emptied but left out overwinter because we have no storage space for it) was frozen solid even after rain was pouring out of it. Spring! In Wisconsin! ;)
