Following up to the last post . . .
I went out to the compost bin yesterday. I followed the path that DH had snowblowed across the lawn and into the woods.
Where I found this:
There are three compost bins under there somewhere. Yes, what's in the bins does stay frozen for much of the year, but we keep adding to it anyway. The currently 'active' bin is the one in the middle and I couldn't (be bothered to) get to it yesterday. I picked the one closest to me and cleared just enough snow to be able to open it. Amazingly, it wasn't frozen shut.
