Compost components - # 323

We have been diligent composters of kitchen waste for a long time. Today I thought that the box looked especially colourful. (Don't worry too much about the almonds, raisons and - I'm sorry to say - the brazil nut. They are just a tiny 18 month old remnant that had slipped to the back of the cupboard, only to be revealed as the hunt for this year's Christmas Cake baking ingredients started. The birds will enjoy them).

Have a happy weekend.

  1. Beautiful trash. Let's see. I can see a new quotation from this. "One man's compost, is another's blog post.:

  2. This week my wife made the fruitcake and the Christmas pudding, plus some cookies. I tasted the pudding and it will be perfect by Christmas. My job is to make the Springerle cookies.

  4. My former boss has a composting bin in her (huge) apartment kitchen iin the city. She used the compose to feed her plants on her rooftop garden.

    How do you use your compose?

  5. We compost just about everything possible.... it all goes in a brick compost bin at the end of the back yard, and after a couple of years of fermentation, it goes on the flower beds. Stale bread goes to the birds, and plastic containers, cans, glass and paper goes in the blue box for pick up.
    The only thing I can't recycle is plastic bags, which bugs me no end.

  6. Indeed a beautiful still-life. So you do it, too, make compost. I have two boxes in my garden.

  7. Good stuff! Here in our part of CH, composting is organized on the village/town/city level and our "green waste" is picked up once every two weeks. By the way, when I started my own wee compost heap in the US, I read that citrus peels take very long to decompose ('cos of the oils) and I never put them in. That has stuck with me, and I think I should be reconsidering about now.

  8. What an innovative exposure! Who would have "thunk" to take a photo of our compost pail! Fantastic!

  12. It is indeed a lovely and very festive. With regard to citrus peel, you can put it in a bokashi bucket and there's a great article on Mark Ecclestone's blog at http://thegreenfingeredphotographer.blogspot.com/
