Compost Gnome


Giovanni Tomasini's gnome simply dissolves during one growing season, feeding the surrounding vegetation as it dies.

"Crafted by hand, each Mino is made from home-composted materials that have been packed into a gnome mold and then left to dry."

No, your original comment says "or." Must be cat poop parasites at work, altering your perception for a five hour window there... Heh.

Did I just write "oar"?
Cat poop parasites at work, I bet.

I've never liked the garden gnome, they creep me out a little bit. In fact I'd like to rub poison ivy (from a distance, with tongs) in the underpants of whoever came up with the idea. If you want something unsightly what about a compost washing machine or a compost toilet bowl out in the yard. I don't know why those stupid gnomes bother me so much.
