Composting for Beginners
There are many among us who have green thumbs and maturing gardens. But, for the beginners among us, can you share with us how you started your compost pile? Where can you go to learn more? Samantha emailed:
I read the recent post on using compost for the garden, but I'm just starting out and wondering if there is an old post for favorite methods for starting a compost pile. I have questions such as: which kits to buy, to worm or not to worm? Also wondering if anyone's ever used a pet waste composter.
