Travis the composter

May 09

Travis the hungry composterAfter dinner, if our family has left over food scraps my dad will say “Travis is hungry.” Travis is always hungry, and we feed him lots of food like orange peels, apple cores, walnut shells, fish bones, coffee grinds, potato peelings, tea bags, and egg shells.

Today, we are feeding Travis rhubarb stems, onion skins, burned toast, some of Myles’ fur, pencil shavings, dust bunnies, and olive pits. Yuck. Travis turns the yucky food into beautiful nutrients we use to feed our fruit and vegetable gardens.
