Other drought lesson learned: dry potting soil can spontaneously ignite.








This all happened two doors down the street from our house. Luckily, nobody was hurt but at 102 degrees outside it wasn't much fun for the volunteer firefighters to kit up in full gear. Probably the saddest part was watching my neighbor cry - they were moving out and she had just finished cleaning the house yesterday.

I hope everyone was OK...we often have the manure heaps on the farms ignite when the weather is hot so I suppose it stand to reason that compost can too.
