Eight Ways to Find Local Produce (via Ergobaby Blog | Eight Ways to Find Local Produce) with lots of great links!
Oh, my gosh, how did I not know this? And to think we’ve been wasting them all these years!
My first couple years of gardening, I couldn’t figure out why anyone ever talked about having too much to harvest. Now that my garden is finding its stride, I’m realizing: There’s no way our families can eat all this produce!
Shannon of Pineapples & Artichokes found me this list of resources to help find a place to donate extra garden harvests. I used AmpleHarvest.org (just input a ZIP code) to discover that the food bank nearest me accepts donations of produce. I wrote the director and discovered I can bring over my tons o’ garlic and greens next Wednesday morning.
Guest post from Chris & Rebekah of Liberated Family that is totally inspiring me. I’ve been wanting to compost for our garden (located at a friend’s house) but the only outdoor space I can call my own is a teensy balcony. Ready for this suggestion?
But what if you don’t have room for even one pile? Put a plastic container on the deck or backyard, buy a commercial compost spinner, or just get a large plastic trash can with a tight-fitting lid. If you use any type of airtight container, drill or poke some holes in it so it can breathe. And if you’ve used a trash can, turning the compost is so simple - just lay it on its side and roll it.
