We keep a container under the kitchen sink in which we collect food scraps for compost. We don't have a yard and we don't have compost pick-up at our apartment building, so when our little container is full I dump the contents into a produce bag and pop it in the freezer to keep it from getting stinky. When a few bags accumulate, I bring them to friends who put the contents in their own yard bins. Every once in a while, I forget to make the hand off. And the compost bags pile up. While getting ready for Barry's parents' visit, I realized I hadn't made a compost hand off in far too long. I couldn't believe that we had room for anything else in the freezer when I pulled all of the compost bags out. And I can't believe that we used to fill up garbage bags with all of this stuff for years.
