Let it ROT!!!


Using power tools, the usual.

It's coming together!

Went ahead and harvested some carrots. Real carrots, dirt and all.

Finish product!

Starting it out with my failed freckle lettuce.
This past weekend Matt and I took on the endeavor of building a compost. We needed to put our food waste to good use and my garden needs some extra love. We wanted to make it as simply and cheaply as possible so we used lattice fencing and some scrape wood from out back. Matt did most of the work, but he taught me to use some power tools and I pitched in!!!

Went up to Topanga Canyon for a hike in the morning. We read about the Eagle Rock hike and picked it-it's about 6 miles roundtrip with somewhat of a loop so you're not completely retracing your steps the whole time, which is nice. we started out at 7:30, after finding free parking ont eh street ($10 to park in the state park lot), and started hiking. the beginning of hte trail is uphill, but it's nice cuz you're gonna end going down. while heading up we saw a few deer, and then started chatting with an older guy named Bob. He told us his usual hiking partner is out of town, so he went ahead and came along with us for the remaining 5 miles or so, ha. he told us his life story, and a few other's life stories, and then he told us alot about the trail bc he walks this one about 3-4 times a week, so yea, he kept us company, and vice versa.

Hiked the bridge to nowhere hike in Azusa yesterday-pretty awesome hike with a good destination. you hike along a fork of the san gabriel river the whole way (4.5 mi on way) and criss cross it about 5 or 6 times. feet get wet and there's plenty of spots to just get your whole body in if you wanna cool off which was awesome! it was about 80° out when we were there so it felt amazing. you get to the bridge which is crazy that it's out there, and if you hike to the water right there, there's a couple rocks to jump off into one area. the biggest is about 10 feet, adn the water was about 6 or 7 feet deep so you're fine. it's an awesome break down there by teh water to hang out and relax. we saw a bunch of big horned sheep up on the hill while hanging out here too which is insane. definately wanna go back to do this one with sandals and swim gear, and more water!
