We haven't even started to compost yet - but I was so pleased with this tip I decided to publish it even before we put it into practice.
When my environmentally conscience wife and I started discussing composting last week - she explained frankly that she was not thrilled about schlepping kitchen waste out to the pile in the dead of winter every day
(keeping in mind that we plan to compost in a wooded patch over 300 feet away from the house).
I told her about those nifty little buckets that sit on your counter which are purported to be odor free for days - she wrinkled her nose.
Then a friend at work gave me this fabulous idea.
Use the freezer.
We can simply toss our daily kitchen wastes (non-meat) into a tupper' or baggie or some such thing then pop them into the freezer.
It can be added to and stay there as long as needed, and the schlepping can be done at our convenience.
