Meg and Kelly at Future House Farm posted a blog a couple weeks ago about what is IN their sink and what it means. I've been noticing lately what's NEXT to mine.
Here you'll see a of couple wine glasses from last night (no further comment necessary), the rinsed out blender from my husband's daily protein drinks and...the beginnings of my compost pile:
I'm in awe of my collection of compostables so far. With the lids on, the contents are already starting to do amazing things inside...getting all moist and steamy and smelly. Jim, on the other hand, is starting to get a bit eeked out by my fascination with our growing collection of biodegradable food scraps on our countertop.
You see, there was peace in our home when it was just one container. However, I've been promising to stake out and start our first-ever compost pile for weeks now. And while my intention to do this remains steadfast - it is still undone. In my defense, though, I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I just have so many GREAT IDEAS and PROJECT THOUGHTS constantly coursing through my head. And that there are just not enough hours in a day to get to them all. But, now that the compost container quantity inside our home has reached three, and I am now in need of a fourth, I either need to start hiding my containers or this project needs to move to the top of the list.
I'll keep you posted.
