My New Compost Setup

Another Earth Day Resolution can be crossed off my list! I finally have a compost bin. The compost bin was originally part of a container garden I setup two years ago that completely flopped. I re purposed one of the totes by drilling a extra holes for air flow.

At the bottom of the container I added the bit of store bought compost I had left over from the beginning of the year.

Then topped it with some leaves from my front yard.

And on top of that food bits.

I have been collecting food scraps for the past few weeks and storing them in this plastic container in my freezer.

Here is everything that fit in the container:

It is mostly banana peels and a bits of tomato. The freezer is great since it keeps smells and fruit flies away.

Now I just need to get/make a rain barrel and sew a few hankies and more of these face scrubby things.
