Compost Ideas

But the plant is huge, it looks like it's on steroids, she must be doing something different. Salli explains -- compost, compost, compost. She loves her compost and it shows. Salli and Bart look at her compost bins. Here she puts her grass clippings, any leaves and pine needles on the ground, prunings from her garden that she chops into small pieces and table scraps with the exception of dairy and meat. Bart likes what he sees but has 2 small tips. When composting be sure to keep the pile moist. You don't want it to dry out or the compost will stop. And, turn it once a week or every time you cut the grass.

Salli has a question. The winters here are long and cold, often her compost turns into a solid block of ice. Any thoughts? One option is an indoor composter. There are some on the market now that allow you to continue composting all throughout the year. Good idea.
