“Baby, it’s cold outside”
So cold that my compost bucket (which we keep outside on our fire escape) had frozen shut.
After a weekend of numerous home cooked meals, our compost bowl was starting to overflow, and its contents needed to retreat to the outdoors.
There was no way I was getting the lid off the bucket, so I figured I would bring it inside to warm on up.
When I got back from work, I soaked up the remaining water and was able to add my food scraps no problem.
The bucket is back outside now, but I am sure that will not be the last time it gets to dodge the fire escape’s winter chill. Stay tuned!
