We have two small green food waste recycling boxes in the kitchen. We have two larger green food waste recycling boxes outside the back door.
Indoors, one is for teabags, coffee grinds, and fruit and veg peelings that Husband can add to the compost heap; the other is for cooked foods and bones. Ditto the outdoors bins. Except I didn't know that.
The other day Husband stopped me at the back door. He lifted the lid of one of the identical bins. 'What's that in there?' he said.
'Um, food waste?'
'It's in the wrong bin.'
'It's in the wrong bin. Those are peelings. They should be in the compost bin.'
'I didn't know there was an outside compost bin.'
'Why did you think we've got two bins here then?'
He says he told me. Just like he says he told me about the right and wrong places to store computer files.
One of us is either getting forgetful or doolally. I'm not taking bets on either or whom.
