Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 146: Composting

Although we no longer maintain a plot at the Fremont Community Garden, we still make use of the big compost bin there so that we don't have to dump all of our organic waste down the disposal.  We keep a small plastic container under the sink for our organic waste and then take it to FCG when it needs to be emptied.  Since we tend to eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies and eggs, the amount of organic waste can build up pretty quickly!  Thanks to the composting option and the mixed recycling, we manage to keep most of our trash out of the garbage can, which is quite a lovely aspect of living here in downtown Sacramento.
