** TRASH TIP **

Now that the warmer (hot!) weather is here, the last trash tip on
maggots bears repeating.  We received a note from one of our customers
sharing that her barrels have been maggot-free since she began putting
1 small camphor ball in the bottom of her barrel every week.  If you
have any helpful tips to share, please email them to
eclegg@pedalpeople.coop
