So now that I have begun composting at my own home. I've become pretty excited about it. Seems everywhere I look I find myself thinking "Hmmm... I could nab that and put it in my compost pile!"

I had been considering going to the local coffee shops asking for their left-over coffee grounds. Then it occurred to me that I could start a kitchen compost at work.

In a 5 gallon bucket with a lid that I can place under the sink, I'm hoping I can get people to empty the used coffee bags, tea bags, etc. into it.

Plus, you know how there seems to always be left-over veggies in the fridge that were someone's best intention but never eaten? Yep, time for compost bin!

I think the general quota is 1 part green vegetation to 2 parts dry stuff like news paper, cardboard, straw etc. I'm still new to this but I found old celery & cauliflower in the fridge, added some used Coffee Bags a little news paper and ta da! The beginning of some compost material to add to my home one next week. I figure I'll bring a lidded 5 gal bucket tomorrow!
