The Maine idea

The things you stumble across on the internet.

A guy in New England who bought this stuff by the truckload for his farm raved about it and said it had become popular enough that it’s now sold by the bag to everybody.

Lobster compost? I thought hey why not. If nothing else I’ll have the swankiest dirt in town. And so for the sheer novelty of it all I bought a bag.

I confess my back’s been antsy and after I managed to get the box over the front step when it arrived–I thought it was coconut water, oops, wrong return address–I haven’t yet hefted it over to the back yard. And I’m not about to open it in the house. My nose wants to know what it smells like in there, but only out there.

I just hope the raccoons don’t tear the heck out of my trees trying to get to the seafood.

Just don’t open it near me! I’m severely allergic to shellfish!!

Swanky for sure!
As a knitter you might consider alpaca “beans”. Apparently no odour, require no waiting time to compost, they are ready to go and are wonderful for fertilizing everything. If I can find a source I think I’d like to try them.
Good luck with your lobster. Tee hee.
