I Wanna Talk About Compost

No really, I do.

And it makes me want to gag a little bit because a year ago I would have laughed in your face if you would have told me I was going to write a blog post about compost.

But it's interesting, I swear.

And I just missed Earth Day.

So you should feel compelled to read about compost...because of the earth.

Keep reading.

You want to know why I want to talk about compost?

Because I've never lived anywhere with anything that was, I mean, never lived anywhere that I could use compost?

I mean I've never had a garden or anything where compost could be used. ie, I live in big cities that have no room for gardens and before that I was in COLLEGE, who has time for gardens in college? There were much more important things to do, like DRINKING...and studying.

Anyway, the hubs decided we needed a composter...hmm...spellcheck doesn't like that it compostor? Nope, anyway internet you know what I'm talking about right a thing you put organic material in and ultimately compost comes out of? I swear it's composter.

I've completely lost my train of thought with the spelling...

Right, so we have a composter and I am oh so amazed at how much you stuff you can compost!

For instance, you can compost PAPER TOWELS and TISSUES and EGGSHELLS and all this other cool stuff that I use everyday and just throw away. Seriously, check that link, it has 163 things you never knew were compostable.


Because honestly I HATE throwing things away but composting never occurred to me because of said reasons up at the top.

I feel like a better person now.

And you should too just because you read this.

Happy Belated Earth Day.


  1. that's actually really cool and makes me want to get one! I think we should actually.. we have a yard we could dump the compost in!

  2. We're planning on getting one too. I already have a corner of the yard picked out for it. You can even take it a step further and get an "nature mill" I think that's what they're called...Kenzie has one, it's like a super speedy way to decompose almost everything that's edible. It is all pretty neat-o. :)

  3. Do you have a nature mill? We have one-they are amazing. But they hum all the time, we need to move ours to the garage! But my garden loves me for having one!!!

  4. Damn, that was kenzie, not nick that wrote that! oops!

  5. Such a great cause!

  6. We tried composting but our building's garden forbade it. We can't mix our compost in with the garden's compost or some nonsense like that. I think we'll try sneaking it in once they set regular open hours again. We weren't even composting TP or PT or anything like that - just skins/leaves/peels/seeds/etc from fruits and veggies!

  7. i can't wait to move and start composting! i will definitely be referring to that link when the time comes.
