Our friend Elon Schoenholz, the new editor of Cool Tools (the online offspring of the Whole Earth Catalog), has a lovely “irregular series” of compost breakdown photos on his blog. We’re looking forward to witnessing the ongoing transformation of Elon’s compost pile.

Elon also has a Etsy site where you can see his witty ficus tree photos.

  1. I love reducing my waste and fertilizer bill, but compost disgusts me until it is done. I love the arty aspect of this, but it gives me the heeby geebies!

  2. you know what I did? I ate a half watermelon and scooped out the center and then i used the watermelon rind as a pot once it began to soften I buried it. it seems to be working well. I think it’s all composted by now.
