OK some funny news. Bob got us a 5 pound plastic container which has a snap-shut lid. It's clear plastic. I thought it was dangerous to have a tight-seal composting container in the kitchen but let him go with it. It's about 8 inches square.
So then a few days later it nearly exploded
he he he. It had a giant crack down one side. Bob was baffled. I told him I was waiting for it to happen.
He got us another one, and this time he's put a hole into it. We'll see how it does, if it explodes, or if it smells.
This is just a "holding" area, we have an actual composting pile in the back yard.
