John Adams Was a Compost Wacko
I read it in Parade Magazine!
He was touring gardens in, uh, Germany? France? when he saw a big pile of what Parade called "fertilizer".
He jumped into the pile & gleefully proclaimed that his manure pile back home was better!
so how to you stack up against our founding father on the wacko scale?
(I my own self am doing nothing different from what I've done for years, ho hum;
taking lemon wedges home from restaurants,
screeching "don't throw that away!" when my hostess starts to discard grape stems,
stopping to ask total strangers for the bags of leaves they're hauling to the curb.)
