Finally, an update on our previous testee: the Whole Foods take-away container. Basically, it has lost all resemblance to its box shape and has broken into little pieces. I expect in a couple more months it will have integrated itself into my other compost, and will be helping to grow my first greens next Spring. (This is a nice thought as I harvested the last of the hardy greens from my Connecticut garden following a spate of hail this morning).
