Time to start a compost pile

Sometimes I get very lazy or forget what I’m trying to accomplish. You know the saying “Out of sight, out of mind”. Well, that is what my compost pile has been. It is on the side of my house that we hardly ever go to. At least that is the reason I tell myself. The real reason is I’m never really sure how to make my compost pile work for me, or how I can make it work effectively if I’m to use it for my garden. This blog has given me a reason to find out how to properly get my compost started. I went to my local library and decided to check out some books on composting.

I found these books to be very informative and helpful. Wish me luck!!

  1. So far, my “composting” consists of tossing stuff like veggie scraps and coffee grounds right into the raised beds.. sometimes I even just dump the lawn clippings right in there too.

    1. Yup, that’s the way to do it. I took my pig manure and put half directly on a patch of barely made compost, dirt, and a whole bunch of leaves. The other half I put right on top of my main compost pile.
