Adding COMPOSTING completes the list. A number of us live in suburbs in big houses with big yards. There must be somewhere a place to “store” any discardable leftovers. Visit Eartheasy and read their article on composting, including options of Compost Tumblers. Two big ones stand in one corner of our garden. Additionally, a small container with a lid decorates my kitchen counter. That way I do not need to run to the garden every time I have some scraps. The compost can have several uses not the least enriching your lawn.
