You can setup your composting pile in the corner of your yard or purchase a composting bin on your gardens center. I keep this compos bucket under my sink to collect all of my items until they're ready to go out to the pile. The proper way to show is pour part ground. [BLANK_AUDIO] To one part grain Browns include dried leaves, woodchips, newspaper, old potting soil, pine straw. And then your greens include any organic materials from your kitchen, such as root and vegetable peels, even tea bags. Don't forget to add in any crackers, bread or flour products. There are a couple of things you do not want to include. That would be pet droppings of any kind, any meat or meat products, and diseased plants and flowers are a no no. Also be sure not to include any weed seeds. You want to turn your soil every couple of weeks to accelerate the decomposition process. Your finished compost will be dark brown and crumbly, and can be added to top soil for your plantings. This nutrient rich compost creates a healthy environment for worms and soil ecosystems.
