    Why don't you make compost in your garden?

    Kitchen trimmings go into the home dalek, bigger home stuff like hedge trimmings go to the lotty.

    Because I already have a compost bin on the plot and don't want to waste the space in my garden. Apart from that it will give me a good excuse to visit the plot each week, now that I have no chooks and can't use them as an excuse!.

    I still have the Scrapheap at my distant site and also have a large Penultimate plot close to where I am living now.I also have a large garden but have plans for that. I fancy an orangery linked to the house with a summerhouse at the top of the garden.

    I will probably keep my old plot on as well next year and maybe visit it monthly instead of the daily/weekly visit to my new plot.

    I am getting quite a bit of wood ash from my log burner lately so I could mix this in with my kitchen waste to help sweeten it once I get a receptacle.

    I was going to suggest a couple of mop buckets, some polythene for a lid and elastic to hold it on, but if you are going to use wood ash it would need to be cold or use metal mop buckets, though the bit to wring out the mop can't be removed with them
    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.
