Last year when we moved into this new house we started a compost pile out in the back yard. We have been filling the pile with grass clippings, leaves and food scraps so we will hopefully have some rich compost ready for our first garden in our new yard. But one of the problems with feeding a compost pile is the daily process of collecting the food scraps. It’s not always convenient to run the scraps out to the compost pile. That’s where a Ceramic Compost Keeper comes in really handy.
Compost Keeper for Kitchen Scraps
Sure, you can collect the scraps in a bowl until you take them out to your compost pile but then you run the risk of odors or gnats. For Christmas, my husband ordered me the Ceramic Compost Keeper so I would have a convenient way to collect my food scraps and coffee grounds.
I will admit that I didn’t think I really need this for my counter. After all, why would I want to spend money on something just to collect my food scraps that I’m planning to take out to the compost pile.
But, after having it for almost 3 months, I am a believer! There is a charcoal filter in the lid that prevents smells from seeping out into my kitchen. With the 10″+ inches of snow that we have had on the ground this month, I have not wanted to take a daily trip out to our compost pile. I’ve been very thankful for this compost keeper that lets me collect the coffee, tea and fruit peelings without causing a mess on my counter.
