Devil's Got a Pitchfork


Devil's Got a Pitchfork

That's right, I've officially joined the Compost Revolution. Woo Hoo! I'm very excited about this new adventure. So far, so good. Of course, the jury's still out on whether I can actually produce soil from my food scraps.

Hey, I'm willing to give this a try. Wish me luck! :0)

Do you know where that any one can find one of those bins? That bin would be great for me living in a trailer park. The neigbors and managers can't complain, and Bill too. Hopefully I can find one liker that and that would be great.
Michelle, How is your trash coming along, are you trowing away half as much trash as you used too? I know that Was a goal for you. We now take the trash to the curb once a month. I feel so good, and happy that I am doing something so good.

Here is one place to get some info on different size composting bins and also vermiculture bins.

The prices have gone up since I bought one but the eco-cycle base tumbler works very well and doesn't take up a great deal of space. An important consideration in a trailer park.

Rey: Thanks for posting that link. I was looking for an affordable composting bin for Jennifer, but I didn't have any luck finding a cheap one!

Jennifer: I hope this link will put you on the right track for finding a compost bin!

Oh, and to answer your other question: It's amazing how little trash I throw out now! Yes, I think it's the small victories that keep us motivated to do something good for the planet.

And encouraging each other helps, too!
