Since we are replacing a chemical this week, and it’s getting warm enough to start gardening, I thought I’d share a VERY simple way to compost.
We have always thrown our kitchen scraps in the garden – egg shells, coffee grounds, fruit peels, etc. and it works great in the winter just to keep them in a bowl on the counter. This is great for our soil and plants and allows us to forgo the nasty growth chemicals.
However, now that Summer is coming, I am getting ready for the fruit flies. How those little pests annoy me.
This year, we are using a compost keeper for our compost – it’s terrific because it looks okay on the counter, holds more than a bowl (so I can be lazy and wait longer to take the stuff outside) and it has a carbon filter to help keep the smell and fruit flies away!
In addition to this, I’ll still use my tried and true fruit fly “trap” . . .
Fruit Fly Trap – In a small container, mix apple cider vinegar with a squirt of dishwashing soap. Set on the counter near compost container or fresh fruit. It works best to use a container with a small neck. I use a pretty little bud vase so it’s attractive, and it’s AMAZING how many fruit flies get into it daily.
It’s not too late to be ready for summer! Only a week left until our six-week session starts. If you want to meet summer feeling confident and healthy, click here!
