Found this on LA Moms Blog – it’s a good foray into talking about composting.
In Los Angeles we can compost in our green bins. I’m almost ready to move past my childhood composting trauma and give it a try… almost.
About a year and a half ago, I posted a series on my personal blog entitled The Lazy Mother’s Guide To Saving the Planet. It was all about being eco-friendly by doing less, or, in my case, using the environment as a convenient excuse to avoid wrapping holiday presents. And I got to thinking, “This would be a fantastic idea for a book.”
Obviously, I wasn’t the only one who thought so.
I have gotten over my disappointment that someone beat me to the book, but I haven’t gotten over my laziness or my environmentalism. I still eschew goody bags at parties and prefer hand-me-downs to new stuff (I am also cheap). And I still let yellow mellow.
What I don’t do is compost. I know, I know. Food waste either sullies the water supply or sits in a plastic garbage bag, waiting to decompose sometime around when my great-great-great-granddaughter gets Bat Mitzvahed. Properly composted, it can be fertilizer for all that food I am supposed to be growing in my yard.
