Have stuff to compost but no actual place to compost? Go to, enter your location and compost centers will magically appear on your computer screen.

As for keeping the stuff to compost until you get to the compost site you have a couple of options. As we don’t have much counter or under the sink space I put it in a plastic bag in the freezer. But if you have a bigger kitchen there are all kinds of small, kitchen top and under the counter compost pails with charcoal and other kinds of filters that work well.

    I didn’t know that. Wow. Thank you for the tip, Shannon.

    PS: I love the picture of the wrens on your blog at

    Did you know putting it in the freezer first actually speeds the breakdown of some veggie matter? I do that whenever I don’t want to go put it my pile. Throwing the whole frozen chunk into the middle of a hot pile — it’s practically unrecognizable a week later .
