Do you compost in your home? If you are contemplating composting in your home, then the best thing to do is to develop a composting routine for your kitchen. Trust me, you will need it.
I wasn’t very happy when I moved to a second world country and my husband told me we needed to start composting. He started to grow root crops in his bushland and needed it to grow nice healthy root crops. I am like, no.
However, I had no choice. In the beginning, it was not fun at all. My husband thought it was a great idea to leave an empty tin can on our kitchen countertop for composting until it was full.
Nope. Not a good idea. We moved to a more appealing blue cracker container — still atrocious.
Instead of complaining about it, I suggested that my husband build a shelf outside the kitchen door so we can unload our compost scraps out there. Praise Jesus, he thought that was a great idea.
I had to learn the hard way, but you don’t have to. Establish a composting routine for your kitchen and reap the benefits of all that composting provides.
I really wish I would have had some of these tips when we first started composting. I could have saved myself a lot of headaches. Here are a few tips I wish I had known before starting:
- Be Clear on What You’re Composting
- Check the Compost when Cleaning Up the Kitchen
- Compost when Cleaning Out the Refrigerator
- What About Outside the Kitchen?
