Douglas quoted in "Composting - The California Garden - Los Angeles Times"

As I figured when I gave a phone interview with Joe Robinson from the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago, only one quote made it into his article on compost...

'"I'll be at a Hollywood party and all of a sudden we'll get into a riff on composting," says Douglas E. Welch, a computer consultant and backyard composter in Van Nuys who has a blog called A Gardener's Notebook.'

...but something is always better than nothing, especially the mention of the name of this blog. Although a URL and link would have been even sweeter. Mainstream press seems reluctant to give out URLs. I imagine they are afraid a given URL might expire and redirect readers to something nasty.

Nevertheless, I shall bask in my one-quote glory for today, at least. (SMILE)
