It's is April 21 and Everyone Knows Today is Earth Day



Happy Earth Day! Composting is finally cool.

As a child I grew up with a compost bucket in the sink. There was a strict protocol of where glass, metal, paper and of course organic material was to be put. It was also my job to run this little stinky bucket out to the compost pile. I really hated compost and the entire process of composting. It was an embarrassment when friends came over. I longed to throw things away in the trash like everyone else.

I never thought the day would come when I would long to compost.

That day has arrived. I saw the most impressive kitchen composter on television last night. It turned simple table scraps into beautiful loamy soil.

Summing it up with the most appropriate cliche I can think of "even a worm turns".

  3. The kitchen composters we saw on the History Channel last night were from Nature Mill and range from $299.00 to $399.00. An eight dollar carbon filter absorbs the odors for five years before needing to be replaced.

    Soil is produced every two weeks. No odor!

  4. I do want to add that if you want to compost you do not need a fancy composter. There are many articles and videos online with information about composting and how to build your own composter.

    Be sure to do your research before you commit to your final choice.
