Compost Happens!

There seems to be an attitude by most that making compost is a complicated thing to do. I want to shout out to the world that it is not....compost happens on its own... everywhere! The key is getting in on that action and controlling it in your own yard.  If you try to buy Compost, it can be hard to find in stores but it is EASY to make.  Start right in your own yard and in your kitchen.  Do you peel potatoes or carrots? Save these peelings in an attractive kitchen composter that can sit on your counter. In fact, save ANY vegetable waste. When it gets full, take it outside to your compost bin or pile.  Composting is so easy, it can be done in a simple pile,you dont even need a container. Sure a container will look neater but its not necessary. Do you mow your lawn? Do you have leaves from trees? Do you have weeds in your yard? Save these great compost ingredients! Add them to a pile and get started today!  More composting tips to come...
