CHANGE THE WORLD WEDNESDAY TIME TO START COMPOSTING

COMPOST

You can add finished compost to your garden about 2-4 weeks before you plant.

Almost anything  that was living at one time is great for compost bins (think plant life not animal) No fats,pet droppings etc.

Think sun for that compost bin 120 and 160 degrees is best

Grass clippings for nitrogen and straw for carbon.

Coffee grounds and worms go together plus all those vegetable table scraps

Paper sure but shred it first.

Think in 3’s  3ftx3ftx3ft size wise and turn every couple weeks to aerate your pile.

Oh yeah! Compost is the best!!! SO satisfying to put in all the fluttery little onion papery peels and banana peels and coffee grounds (and on and on)....and get BLACK GOLD for the garden!

Wonderful! What I like the most about your post is that it offers us a completely doable list of instructions. You've taken the mystery out of composting. So many times I hear that composting is too complicated, too messy and too smelly ... but your easy-to-follow instructions make it a snap.

Thanks so much!

Great post! We compost. So much better and beneficial than tossing stuff in the garbage.

This is one of composting instructions that it's quite informative. Small Footprints's weekly challenge was encouraged me to compost my household waste and I want to know how composting is in household scale. I have already written an post it: http://blogodril.blogspot.com/2009/08/change-world-wednesday-and-karinda.html Thanks Joe for your sharing!
