DIY Composting at Home

Our good friend Tim Vidra from one of our favorite Richmond food blogs, E.A.T. just took a step outside to show us how easy creating a backyard composting bin really is.

Well it has been a long time coming for E.A.T. and I am happy to say we have finally begun something that was way overdue and included among my Top Ten 2011 Food Goals. We are composting.

It did not take long to outgrow the little pail we were using and I had to break down and purchase a larger vessel for our scraps.

Every time I cook I have those ends, tops, and skins that I used to pitch.”
