Well it wouldn't fit through the letterbox but FINALLY it has arrived! My new compost bin!
£10 purchase from http://www.nel.getcomposting.com/ (cheaper from here, because the Council pay part of the cost before you! AND you get a little caddy for the kitchen)
|Actually if you look carefully there are two here, as I took advantage of the buy one get one half price offer. There are therefore also two composting kitchen caddies, for peelings, flower heads etc.|
Rubbish Diet Challenge has been all about gardening.
I've been challenged to plant a few salad crops instead of buying large lettuces that I inevitably don't finish, and come in polythene wrappers - if I had my own in the garden I could just go and get the leaves I need for that meal!
I must admit I am not green fingered in the slightest, but with Spring in the air, I am keen to make the most of our garden. Most of it is taken up with a trampoline, admittedly, but the idea of the satisfaction of growing my own basics; carrots, onions etc. is very tempting!
Back to bad habits
This week has been a slump for the rubbish diet with a whole black bin bag going out for the collectors
:( Serves me right for being smug last week!
Lots of recycling went too, nicely separated, but somehow everything I used this week seemed to have packaging that had to go in the regular bin. Future Hubby remembered to put the recycling boxes out, so big pat on the back for him!
Must make more effort with shopping in the next three weeks.
It's worth seeing how others have been getting on with their Rubbish Diet too :
http://www.beyondthebluebin.com/ is one of my favourites!
