Click below to listen to my 2 min Garden Bite radio show:  Indoor compost stuff

I’m not much for trudging out to the compost bin in winter.  So, I wanted to make sure I had a good collection before I put on my Sorels and snowmobile suit to head out to the pile.

I wasn’t sure about those compost buckets that sit on your countertop.  I was pleasantly surprised at how great they work and that they don’t stink like I thought they would!

I had a stainless steel bucket I bought for cheap at a local big box store that worked just fine.  But then I saw really cute ones that add to your decor!  Who’d a thunk it!  I suppose that may be subjective to your idea of cute!  ?  I have the white one, it’s matches my white cupboards.


Compost pails from Gardener’s Supply

There are numerous styles to choose from.  You can find them in many places but I went online and checked out Gardener’s Supply.

Not only can you pack in your coffee grounds, eggshells, onion skins and pepper innards, but you can also compost pet rabbit and hamster droppings, lint from your dryer and spent flowers.  Get a full container, then head out to the compost pile!

And then there’s this….  I’m not quite sure what to make of it but thought I’d throw it out to you!  Biovessel


I found another very interesting indoor composter for small spaces such as apartments or urban living.  It’s a prototype of the product, they haven’t gone into production but it IS interesting.  The product is called Zera Food Recycler.
