The Nature of Things
In keeping with the new earth-friendly lifestyle I've recently embraced, the Husband and I have started composting.
I got tired of throwing all of my vegetable scraps away everytime I made a salad.
So I have read here all about how to compost in an indoor urban apartment setting.
We throw old scraps into a bin (making sure to keep our "greens" and "browns" in good proportion), and periodically stir up the contents to get the primordial sludge going.
The results, which we expect in 2-3 months, should be a high-nutrient super soil that is really beneficial for my potted plants.
Although, all good intentions aside, I think that when things start getting stinky and gross, I'll probably buckle to yuppie pressure and invest in one of these expensive, odor free, color-coordinated automatic composters.
I'll keep everyone posted. #
