Welcome to another edition of Green Thumb Thursday! It started snowing again today but we’re staying warm inside while we plan for our new garden this spring. I am so inspired by all the great posts shared on Green Thumb Thursday and can’t wait to see all the gardening posts that will be shared this week!
The co-hosts of this weekly Green Thumb Thursday link up are:

This week my choice for the featured post from last week’s link up is Composting in Winter from Yearning and Learning. This was such a great article with tips on how to keep your compost pile from freezing in the winter. Oddly enough, I was looking for a post like this and was so thrilled to see this one shared at Green Thumb Thursday last week!
This afternoon I took our container of kitchen scraps out to our compost bin. Because our compost bin is set up off the ground on a frame and not insulated in any way, it is frozen solid. We keep adding to it, knowing that as the temperatures warm it will eventually start to work its composting magic. But that means we have to wait longer to get the rich compost from our bin. As I was walking back to the house this afternoon I was thinking how we needed to create a compost pile that won’t freeze during the winter. Then I saw this post from Learning and Yearning. I’m excited to try out creating an insulated compost pile next fall!
