Pennsylvania Butter Flavored Popcorn Finished

Here is the end of that popcorn illustration. It didn't take much more work, but hopefully you can see a little difference:
Here is a little bit of interesting popcorn history from wikipedia:
Popcorn was first discovered thousands of years ago by Native Americans in North America. It is one of the oldest forms of corn: evidence of popcorn from 3600 B.C. was found in New Mexico and even earlier evidence dating to perhaps as early as 4700 BC was found in Peru.
During the Great Depression, popcorn was comparatively cheap at 5–10 cents a bag and became popular. Thus, while other businesses failed, the popcorn business thrived and became a source of income for many struggling farmers. During World War II, sugar rations diminished candy production, causing Americans to eat three times more popcorn than they had before
And here is the nice little compost pile we have started for the cat/house owner:
The plastic cover will stop the nitrogen from leaking out while the pallet sides will allow aeration. We got the idea from an extremely informative and energetic gardener from the local farmer's co-op. It was great to meet someone here who is a geek for organic gardening.
