Our New Composter

My husband and I recently decided to give composting a try. We have lots of grass clippings, leaves, and such around the house PLUS lots of garbage that a family of five creates. We like to garden and would like to do more of it and have healthier plants and flowers. Sounds pretty win-win to me!
We purchased a small ceramic compost bin for our kitchen (it has a charcoal filter so we don't smell anything) and a larger compost tumbler for our back yard.
We are excited about this because it is frugal and green. We won't be throwing away nearly as much garbage--we'll be recycling!!
We don't know a whole lot about composting but I am sure we will be learning quickly...

  1. Love the idea of the charcoal filter..that would help avoid the odoriffic-ness of composting!

    Nice blog!

  2. We recently set up our compost bin too, it's amazing how quickly they fill up. (Considering it would all go into a landfill!)
