    I live in the city too in an apartment with my husband. I grew up on a farm with acres and acres of trees and land to grow anything you could possibly want, but I couldn't bring that with me to the city. I have a patio where I have a potted garden of corn, tomatoes, green peppers, jalapenos, pumpkins, and sunflowers. I don't have a very large compost bin, but it's one of those plastic storage containers that I fill with paper, cardboard, vegetable scraps, coffee grinds, etc. I drink a lot of coffee so I use the plastic containers that it comes it to use as small compost containers inside my apartment. When they get full, I take them on the patio and put them into the larger one. It may seem like a lot of work, but its not. I don't have a lot of space, but I have a compost container and I use handheld rakes and shovels to mix it around. It just takes take a little time and creativity, but I am doing my part in my little small corner of the world :)

    I just wish I could figure out how to turn my ideas about saving the environment into a full-time paying job. I just love nature and everything it has to offer :)

    I have found the perfect place to get garden fertilizer, your local cafe! I visited mine and asked them to save me coffee grounds for a day. They did, filters and all. I sprinkle the grounds around my vegetable plants, and the filters go in the compost pile. great way to recycle, and the vegetable plants love it too!
