Composting, My Dirty little Secret to Great Gardens!
How and what to compost, is a question I am asked whenever someone finds out that I do it, or they see this picture in my kitchen. It is one picture that I do not share with great joy. Currently, we have been using grocery bags or whatever bags that come into our home. I want my stock-pot sink back. It would be nice to use it properly and not to only hold compost clippings.
Compost materials include: vegetable or fruit material, coffee grounds, yard clippings from pruning and egg shells (crushed they add air to soil and make it lighter). Do not use meat, dairy, breads, pastas, or fats; you want biodegradable materials, and those items would stink up your compost, and not to mention, draw animals. Although, we have racoons that have frequented our compost bin; they like my bird feeders too.
This is a Picture out of the Crate & Barrel catalog that came weeks ago. It is a purchase that I requested for Christmas; I was given grander things. So, I guess I will be getting this little beauty for myself. It will sit on the counter, ready for any scraps during cooking. Then, I will reclaim my sink by the stovetop.
