We went to IKEA last Saturday for their big Green event. They were selling compost bins and rain barrels for 1/2 price. So we got one of each. The first night that we installed the rain barrel we had a thunderstorm and the barrel got totally filled!! So, now I am waiting for the weather to get warmer to be able to feed dry plants. I love our new compost bin! It feel so much better about chopping up fruits and veggies and being able to put the scraps in the bin to be used later on. Since we eat a lot of fruits and veggies this is perfect for us! Oh, and I garden too so compost will help too!
Another thing that we got while at IKEA is this great swing for Hannah. We got two separate attachments: 1 for on the porch like the picture and the other is down in the basement. It seemed a little bit safer than the wooden swing that they sold. And the pouch swing looks super comfy!
