Quick post... baby's about to wake up from her morning nap.
I'm excited about getting back to composting. I've been reading about compost bins -- just trying to decide which kind to get. We have a ton of leaves and garden cuttings. I will need to work with our gardener to make sure he puts everything in the compost.
In the meantime, I am going to order a small kitchen compost pail so I can stop throwing away all this good stuff! It's so ridiculous to throw away good decomposing matter and then go out and BUY fertilizer. What a waste.
I'm also looking into harvesting rainwater. I know we don't get a lot of rain in LA -- but we do get a lot in the winter months. You can actually set up a rainwater harvesting system that purifies the water and makes it good enough to drink. I may not be able to do it in this house -- it may have to wait until we move to our next house. Along with my cow and chicken coop and my solar panels.
