Jan (Thanks For Today)

Hi Kathleen, glad you were able to join in;-) I love my bird bath heater, too! I KNOW I wouldn't have the birds without it...they flock to it, literally! I'm going to start composting, too. It's time. Many are on the market that are carefree, don't smell, pets and critters can't get in, etc. 'No reason not to do these things', is now my motto too! Take care, Jan

You will enjoy composting... and so will your gardens! :-)


Very nice of Jan huh? That blue bin of yours reminds me of Germany. We used this color for cardboards and plastics and it always filled up fastest as compared to the regular trash (black can) and the biodegradable can (brown). Cardboards and plastics stuff is so much more bulky than regular trash so I think that's why it is so big. It is ever so nice they'll sort it all for you and kudos to your city and you.


Nice post, and good reminders. We love our recycle bin.

Amy/GoAway, I'm Gardening!

I like your new header and blog background...very pretty! I don't compost, either. I would like to, but I haven't figured out the best method day.:)


hi Kathleen, Tina beat me to it. Our recycling bin was a lot bigger than our trash the trash only got picked up every other week and the recycling was weekly.
good for you!!


It's great that recycling is so big where you live. I always have a hard time when I visit someone that doesn't recycle. I hate throwing things in the garbage that should be recycled.
It does look nice and Springy on your blog!

the hardest thing about composting is finding an out of the way spot for it.. but one of the extra benefits is less guilt about tossing veggies that are past their prime - at least you feel like they are being put to good use :)

I have thought about composting as well, but have not yet. My mother and my sister both do and I probably need to try..
