Trash Talk

a design discussion.


The discussion questions:

Where do you recommend placing the trash in the kitchen? By the sink? In the prep area? Built-in?  Why?

Trash Compactors are ________________________ ?

Kitchen cabinet trash roll-outs are popular today. What configurations do you like? What tips do you have to help with recycling?

How do you recommend clients handle compostables?

The Kitchen Garden

One of the joys of summer is the abundance of fresh produce that is available for us to cook with and enjoy this time of year.  Growing our own herbs, fruits and vegetables adds to this enjoyment.   There is nothing more satisfying than tending a garden and preparing a meal with freshly picked homegrown items.


Do you have a kitchen garden? Do you grow some things in pots? Do you have herbs growing in your yard, tucked into the landscape and ready to be used in recipes as needed?

Fresh picked produce is gourmet on it’s own and a simple pleasure of the season.  What are your favorite ways to include the bounty of your garden in your summer meals?

What do you do when you have too much?  We want your ideas for preserving beyond the season.

Do you compost? What do you think of the built-into the countertop compost buckets? Have you found a compost bucket or bin design you really like? How do collect your compostable items in the kitchen?


We will be discussing all this and more at #kbtribechat on Twitter – August 14th from 2 to 3pm eastern time.  You are invited to join us!
