I’m back from a work imposed hiatus from blogging and ready to go with multiple posts this week. It has been far too long, but I still have plenty to say. First we’ll jump back into The Great Spoon Experiment.
Yes, it has been 63 days since I first began this journey of biodegradable curiosity. I took this picture last week before leaving town. As you can see, not a lot of disintegration has occurred quite yet, although I was pleased to note some discoloration in the curvature of the bowl starting to show. This process could take a lot longer than I originally thought. That or the manufacturer’s promise of the spoon being biodegradable was inaccurate. I’m leaning toward it taking awhile, but I have been researching the biodegradation process and I might try to tweak my experimentation process. I know it kind of breaks the scientific process to not change variables in method and stimulus mid-stream in an experiment, but I guess I’m just out of control (pun!). Seriously though, this is mostly just about fulfilling my curious nature and witnessing what seemed to be a rather amazing claim found on the back of my yogurt spoon. I will be satisfied in the end so long as I have one less spoon in my possession. Until I see accelerated progress with it though, my posts will probably be infrequent. Hang in there, we will get through this together.
