Composting

Matt went and picked up a Earth Machine compost bin for only $36 at a Baltimore County-sponsored event at Ikea this morning (they are supposed to be there until 3pm)and it looks pretty good. We've never composted before-the bins are normally about $100 and with the dogs we can't exactly have an open pile compost heap.

Anyone have any composting tips? What container do you use in your kitchen for scraps?

I purchased a compost keeper, from amazon, to keep in the kitchen and I just empty it daily into the large outdoor compost bin. I think they run between $20 and $50 and have carbon filters to keep the smell away :)

I just use a rubbermaid container. Empty it out regularly. Only problem is fruit flies occasionally--but if I empty it out everyday, no fruit flies (but sometimes...I get rrrreal lazy...) :)
