One of the most popular trends today besides Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest, is TikTok: an app for mini videos. My son Chris has joined the ranks of people opening sports card packs, hoping to cash in on collectors wanting the most desirable sports cards out there. That boy knows the world of side hustles and popular trends like no other!
Basically, you pick a topic you are passionate about and do little videos to show off your style, or bring awareness to something, or just play around. There are thousands of people just doing silly things to see if they will go viral, but think of what you could do with a worthy cause or message!
Anyway, yesterday I made my own little video, just to see how people might respond to it, showing me starting an indoor compost with coffee grounds and other biodegradable material. It got like 10 “likes” on the first day! Not too shabby.
Speaking of composting, that is another trend gaining popularity once again as we all look to our possible future of growing our own food for sustainability. Our garden is doing alright, except we still have no squash, just blossoms. No bees either. Putting compost around each plant is supposed to fortify an fertilize the soil, so I thought, “What can it hurt?”
For me though, it’s a job getting any real grounds from those little tiny pods our coffee comes in, because we use a keurig type coffeemaker. It can be done, but it will be slow. So I thought we should start a compost with the grounds, our eggshells, fruit and vegetable discards, etc. Maybe Dad will share some of his coffee grounds with me!

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
