Winter Solstice: Return of the Light
Normally we take this day for a winter walk, where we scatter seeds for the birds. Plans took a detour this year as we have two sick wee ones; fevers and viral bronchitis call for adjustments in a days plan. But there was chili, and there were candles. After the match was snuffed, into the compost bin it went. A few weeks ago I google "can I compost matches". Instantly I found a yes answer, along with 75 other things you might not know you can compost. So, if you celebrate the Winter Solstice and our march toward longer, sunnier days, make sure to drop those matches in the compost.
