Houston, we have compost!
I have been thinking about starting a compost area for a while now but I did not want a big pile of dead, decaying stuff in my yard with flies buzzing all over the place. If I threw everything I could on the pile, it would be about 8 feet high. (I do alot of weeding, mowing and trimming).
So, I wanted something small that would mostly be for food scraps and other things but not for every branch I trimmed from the birch tree. I really hate when I throw scraps and organics in the trash, like I am wasting something. And in our efforts to be more sustainable, I went out into the yard the other day, sod ripper in hand, and made a compost area.
It is NOTHING fancy, but I think it will work.
