Kitchen Compost Crock

I keep garbage on my kitchen counter and I'm proud of it. Used coffee grinds, tea bags, vegetable peels, leftovers and even some of my junk mail. No, I'm not a disgusting slob, I'm a kitchen composter.

During the winter, it's not always fun to take food scraps out to the compost bin. Most people keep their compost bins far away from their houses. Usually theyíre hidden in a corner of the yard somewhere. This means that you can't just poke your head outside and toss stuff in. During the winter taking kitchen scraps out to the compost bin definitely becomes a shoes and coat required affair. Buying a Compost Crock is a great way cut down on the wintery treks through snow and ice to your compost bin.

It's nice to have a container right there on your counter to toss garbage into. Mostly I use it for coffee grinds and egg shells but other kitchen waste stuff would be fine too. Just avoid things like meat and fat. Most crocks kind of look like cookie jars so you wonít mind having it on the your kitchen counter. Some even have a carbon filter in the lid so they donít even smell bad.

With a kitchen composter you arenít actually making compost in the crock but itís a helpful container to store compostables that youíll eventually take out to your compost bin. And if you donít have a compost bin, then what are you waiting for? Compost is one of the best things that you could add to your vegetable garden or flower beds. Even indoor plants will benefit from compost being added to their post.

If you're tired of battling winter weather to get to your compost bin then perhaps a kitchen compost crock is for you. Theyíre attractive, they donít smell bad and they can help you compost all year long.
