I am also adding a shot of our compost bin. It is another of those do-it-yourself projects that I like. It is simply made from old, used concrete blocks that are loose stacked. I stacked them on their sides to allow for more air movement. Note too, that the holes in the blocks at the front of the bin allow me to place some short poles to help contain the contents of the bin. All of our vegetable scraps go in the pile as well as old straw, and other trimmings.
Finally, in today's post is a photo of an old book I recently located. It is titled "Early American History--1492-1789--Political, Social, and Economic" It was published way back in 1938 and was written by one of my great uncles, Jennings Bryan Sanders. I never really knew 'Uncle Jennings', as my dad called him, but our family was very proud of him and held him in high regard. He earned a Ph.D. and was, at one time, president of a college in Tennessee. I guess you could say he was the scholar in our family. He wrote several books including a couple about the Continental Congress. Apparently, I came by my interest in Revolutionary War History naturally.
