There's a will, but is there a way?
I need some advice with this project. It's possible that many people share my situation, so hopefully we can come up with the right plan.
The problem: No space exists in my home or either of my patios for a compost pile. From what I know, a bin or pile would need to be at least a yard square. I barely have enough room for a small recycling can that has to be emptied a few times a week.
It is highly doubtful that the HOA would agree to a compost pile. I've almost written the thought off altogether. The board is fine with nice-looking veggie gardens -- but compost (and a beginner-composter pile at that), the possibility of flies or vermin, not to mention where to put it ... I don't even want to ask. (Imagining the looks of horror on a few residents' faces is pure comedy.)
But a worm bin? I may be able to fit a worm bin on my upstairs patio, but it may get too hot for that soon. How small can I make it? And can it even be stored outside?
Or maybe a different kind of composting that doesn't take a yard square? What about those composting barrels?
I need something very small that does not smell and can be outside. Please help!
