My Sun Chip Project...

...so I'm sure you've all seen the new Sun Chip bags that make enough noise when you open them up that even your neighbors are sshhing you, right? Well did you know that you can put them in your compost pile? Here is a (very bad) picture of what is shown on the back of the bag.

So after finishing off my delicious Garden Salsa Sun Chips, I took the bag outside, filled it with grass clippings, found a stick to put through the bag and secured it to the ground in our compost pile. I plan on watching this, hopefully disintegrate, and give you all full updates.

However, I'm worried that this little critter might be tempted to mess with the bag and ruin my project. I feel a lot of "NO SHADOW!"s in my future.

Matt has taken on the garden this year and I haven't done a single thing with it. I was just so discouraged by it last year because all we got were tomatoes, jalepenos and a little lettace and carrots. Here are the start of some tomatoes.

Here is Matt tending his garden.

I hope that my Sun Chip project works and I can give you full updates!!! Happy Memorial Day weekend!

I like the science decomposition test idea--it will make for a nice continuing blog update.

Yeah, our pooch destroys everything so he would not allow us to do something similar.

I noticed how loud they are! We were in the car & it was so loud it almost hurts your ears!

I just bought one of these bags this last weekend, so I'm really curious about how they really do this and how your experiment turns out.
