Snakes in the Compost

We have three compost boxes, one for each year we’ve been here. Box 1 is ready to use and we’ve been marvelling at how compost-like all the stuff we’ve been dumping in there has become.

Neither of us, however, remembers chucking snakes into the compost, so when Corrie discovered loads of snake eggs whilst preparing the tomato beds with some compost from box 1 it was quite a surprise. Although I do remember seeing a big snake slithering away from the pile of potato peelings and tea bags I chucked in there one evening.

Pretty cool I reckon!
