They're not weeds

they're carbon offsets

destined for the municipal composting programme (Vancouver rocks)

and (hopefully) soon to be replaced by something more useful

Next job: pull an even bigger pile of weeds from the front garden...


  1. That really is cool! Wish we even had curbside recycling.

  2. Yeah, the right government initiatives really make it easier for individuals to take the right action

  3. Neat! I wish we had something like that here. No herbs?


  4. I've never had much luck growing herbs from seed. I already have mint, tarragon and chive plants growing, and on a separate trip to the garden centre yesterday I got a couple of basil plants and some rosemary to replace the one that died over the winter. I was hoping they'd have more, but they seemed to have sold most of their herb stocks! That's what a sunny long weekend will do for ya! I'll try and get some cilantro, oregano and dill next time I'm there.

    I got some baby tomato plants too - the only one I've ever successfully grown from seed was one that grew from the compost I spread on my peas, rather than one I'd planted on purpose! I do tend to end up with a lot of over-ripe, uneaten tomatoes in the fridge, so it's nice to know they don't go to waste when I put them in the compost heap!

    My sister-in-law calls such plants "volunteers", which I think is awesome.
