A word on waste…

If you have a little corner in your garden, it’s really simple to create a rich compost. Composting bins can be bought at your local garden centre or DIY store for around €40. I simply throw all my raw fruit and vegetable waste, including weeds, shredded (non glossy) paper, ripped up cardboard / egg cartons etc into the bin. If you have the bin on a flat area of earth the worms will do the rest for you. It’s a great way of reducing your household waste and cheaper than buying compost to feed your garden plants.

Here’s what can be composted:

  • Tea bags, tea leaves, coffee grains
  • Fruit and vegetable peelings and cores
  • Egg shells (and the recycled egg cartons)

No cooked food or raw meat, fish etc.
