It’s a well-known fact that you can’t run an efficient kitchen garden without making your own compost. You could buy compost but it doesn’t give you the same sense of satisfaction now does it? Since we bought our giant compost bin and kitchen caddy (small bin to collect kitchen waste such as peelings, coffee grounds, leftovers etc) we have been overwhelmed by the sense of ‘doing good’ that composting brings over you. It’s really quite difficult to explain. To think that all the good stuff that we throw away is being broken down by worms and such like so that we can dig it into the soil to nurish next year’s crop. The whole idea of it blows me away. Anyway you can see I’m pretty excited about it. Here is a photograph that Ryan’s sister took when she came to visit over Christmas. I had never thought of taking a photo inside the bin but it makes a great shot, don’t you think?
