I had some friends over for brunch yesterday. We of course used lots of fresh veggies and fruit, which created a decent amount of composting scrap. I saved a big bag of apple and potato peels, tied it up and put it in my freezer and thought nothing of it. But one friend just looked questioningly at me - my friends know I don't throw anything away, but apple peels?
I found out recently that the Union Square Green Market will take compost every day they're open which is 4 x a week. It's a way better solution than experimenting with compost in my mini patio at my small Brooklyn pad.
They offered a great tip - to freeze the compost on the off days you're not stopping by the market; thus my freezer bag of compost. Not only does this create great new soil, rather than landfilling it - it also keeps the little garbage I do generate from getting smelly.
Some people have 7 year old blackberries in their freezer and others... compost.
