Gardening tip

To the Editor:

For those readers who garden and maintain a compost pile, I have a tip for you.

I recently have been adding tea party literature to my compost, and it really enhances the other garbage, such as egg shells, coffee grounds, etc. This is environmentally sound, and it keeps some garbage out of landfills.

Thank goodness the earthworms can’t read. It would make them ill.
