When a classmate from my Master Composter course let me borrow some worms from her indoor worm bin, we joked about our "Sisterhood of Traveling Worms." Follow us on Twitter @SunnyCompost.

Hot compost & coconuts!
Composting is never dull! Three coconuts were donated last week so we had some fun trying to chop them up. We also have a thermometer now and the pile is smokin'. Over 120 degrees Fahrenheit! This is an ideal temperature as it's an indication that a bunch of microorganisms are at work in the pile. As we continue to add, the temperature should remain in that range. Once we stop adding to the pile, we'll see less heat as there is less work for the bugs and worms to do.
