I had a proud crunchy mama moment the other day.
My three year old was sweeping the remains of her younger sister’s meal from off the floor and putting them in the dustpan.
She starting picking items out and making two piles.
“One is for the outside compost, the other is for the compost under the sink,” she said.
And sure enough, the fruit and vegetables bits were in one pile while the meat and bread with other.
(We compost vegetable, fruit and leaves for the garden but send all the other compostables to municipal composting heaven.)
The next time someone tells me composting is too complicated, I’ll have my daughter explain how it works.
