So yesterday morning, I went out to our car and this baby was sitting in our driveway.
I'll be honest: I am a little bit intimidated by the size of this compost bin. I haven't ever composted before, but it is something I have felt convicted about for awhile. I hate when I am cooking and I end up throwing away a bunch of stuff I know I could compost. I also know very little about composting.
Here's what I do know:
- You need a mixture of wet and dry parts and this has something to do with the chemicals released which help to break down the particles.
- You need some water to get it started. (Perhaps this is part of the "wet" ingredients?)
- You need air exposure.
- It helps to stir the compost-to blend all of its parts together.
If you live in Tempe, call the city and get on board! We all have to do our part to live as good stewards of the gift we have been given: earth.
