I got two compost bins from my city for free. They're made out of recycled garbage bins. I started filling them last fall and it looks like I might have some usable compost pretty soon :) I love having a place to put kitchen scraps and teaching my daughter about composting. I would love to try worm composting someday.

My husband built the double bin model--it works pretty well. We really need because the dirt in our yard is mostly clay.

We were lucky and the people who used to live in our house left one. We just started using it and I love it, I feel so much better putting our scraps to good use.

This past year I started composting and never realized how much food scraps I use to throw away! We have an open area instead of a bin, works just as well.

Hi, how are you? I just came across your blog on delightful blogs {and it is delightful!} and thought I'd share mine with you: Petit Elefant. I'd love to have you stop by and say hello.
Thanks,

I have a composter from Gardener's Supply which you just pile things in. I also have a kitchen crock which I pile food in to take outside. My biggest problem is keeping the compost wet enough and turning it. I love to put coffee grounds in it because it attracts worms. I have been composting for a year, but do not have compost yet. I need to be more diligent.

If I find a worm in the garden, I like to put in my composter. I am not sure if the worm is as happy with this choice as I am! Anna www.green-talk.com

I started composting about 5 months ago when we moved into our new house. I live in Las Vegas and I am surprised to find that not many people here compost. It is a struggle to keep it moist, I keep mine in the shade to prevent over-drying, but it is worth it. It gives you such a great feeling to see that you can make a huge difference with such a small effort. It doesn't take much time (I am a mother to a busy toddler) and it really does not stink (I promise!!!). Thanks for this post, and I love your blog!

I love this post. Thanks for all the great information!!

Teresa

Thank you for all of the great info. We have friends who recently started composting, and they said it is very simple. I would love to start a compost pile as well!

earthworms produce content that are full of nutrients that plants can most easily use like nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium and potassium the same nutrients found in bagged fertilizer and best of all its all natural and helps your soil.

I would like to suggest an easy solution that satisfies your composting needs! 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable and GMO free, BioBag® waste bags offer kitchen, lawn & leaf and pet waste bags!

BioBags are shelf stable, just like paper plates or paper towels and “breathe,” allowing heat and moisture to escape; reducing bacterial build-up of collected waste, thus reducing odor! Visit www.biobagusa.com for more information or contact ecofriendly.greendivision@gmail.com.

I see that you mention 3 parts brown to 1 part green. I've always thought that the composting process goes a little faster if you do just 2 parts brown to 1 part green. Of course, if your ratio gets to where you have too many greens, the compost will begin to smell. But on the other hand, if it gets too dry, it won't compost as quickly.

I`m just starting my composting system this spring and now I`m just researching anything I can to make this work. Found your tips to be helpful.thnx. I`ll be starting off small, naturally. Just hoping I`ll be able to pull this off...
