Just saw those flower pots on Pinterest yesterday - it's a fun idea!

 Black bugbane are beautiful! I've never had one; do they have any disease or pest problems? I like the design idea of purples and blacks and silver/blue color combinations. That is a great idea. And somewhere in the garden a white combination for night wanderings. 

The Bloodgood maple is pretty and I have not seen it before. You guys have such great plants. Great ideas.

Dallas, thank you, I do know how to make Hollendaise sauce. Tomorrow night's dinner salad.

Temperatures for compost - http://whatcom.wsu.edu/ag/compost/fundamentals/needs_temperature.htm

Temperature that kills salmonella - http://www.onlinemedicinetips.com/disease/s/salmonella/Cooking-Temp...

So a compost should be allowed to reach about 150/60 degrees, while salmonella is killed at 140.

I would think that the heat generated in a compost heap would kill any salmonella and if anyone is still worried that it wouldn't kill the germ, then a good rinse in hot water should take care of it. I also crush the shells well before adding.

Oh no! there goes my homemade Caesar salad.

Oh! Perhaps I should rethink egg shells in the compost, open or closed.

Category 1 plants are

Invasive exotics that are altering native plant communities by displacing native species, changing community structures or ecological functions, or hybridizing with natives. This definition does not rely on the economic severity or geographic range of the problem, but on the documented ecological damage caused.

I have two kinds of compost: one is covered and I use for kitchen vegetables and fruit waste; the other is open and I throw garden waste in there and eggs shells. I often find the open compost disturbed and broken egg shells scattered around the ground, probably by  birds; I have seen birds eating egg shells at the feeding station.
