Mother Nature Can't Stop Me

As mothers, we should stick together. But jeez, Mother Nature, what's with the weather these days?!

Mother Nature and her cold, wind, and snow can't stop me from composting!

In the interest of full disclosure, this picture was taken last year during a snowy spell. But if we do get snow this weekend, you can be sure I'll still be taking out my food scraps to feed my compost bin.
