Colorful compost

Compost should be colorful, right? All those kitchen scraps and garden bits and bobs mixed with brown leaves are what do the magic. This pile of autumn decorations, destined for the compost heap, was so colorful I had to snap a picture. Stalks of majestic, (once burgundy colored) millet lie on top of orange gourds and pumpkins, purple ornamental cabbage, and lime green osage orange balls. In a year or so they should all be turned into black gold.
