  4. thanks for the info. We have a composter now and plan to start using it
    this spring. I have never seen one in use, other than watching videos
    online so we are excited to be starting our own.

  6. Yes a compost pile must be a balanced mix of dry and wet stuff – when I cut
    my lawn I put the clippings in a sunny spot in my garden and let the grass
    dry out before putting it in my composter. This is my basic dry stuff, then
    I put in the wet kitchen scraps. Three weeks later I have compost!

  7. I work in a resturant and get all the scraps I need. Dozens of egg shells
    that I rince the stick in the oven for a few minutes place in a paper sick
    and crush them. Also I can get all the coffee grounds and tea bags. On my
    2nd batch of compost I beleave it will take longer because of winter coming

  10. This guy’s voice is odd….. And the way this compost pile is going its to
    complicated. just dump what you have in the pile as you get it. stir it up
    now and then, and add a can of beer.

  11. I have found this tool to be equally as necessary as compost for my garden.
    It kills weeds very efficiently and requires no bending over –

  14. Shredding the wast will accelerate the process. Peeing , yes urinating on
    the heap will act like a catalyst. Keep the contents turned over weekly if
    poss. cover the top Use rough fibrous materials as well to keep the pile
    from clogging. Ask neighbours to give their cut grass veg peeling as well.

  17. No garden is complete without a compost pile! Compost is a soil
    conditioner, mulch and fertilizer all wrapped into one. It feeds the soil
    microorganisms that help plants stay healthy, adds nutrients to the soil,
    and helps clay soil drain better and sandy soil retain water

  18. lawn clippings are also a good insulator like straw and can be used to
    protect from frost in early spring and late fall.

  21. That was very informitive and great info. I didn’t know you could go to the
    garbage garage and ask them about composters. Around here, if anyone has a
    composter, they are mostly homemade ones. I did notice that most of them
    have ventilation, but I didn’t know that it aided in having better
    composting and helped to reduce the smell. I didn’t know either that you
    should layer the wet compost, dry compost, etc. Thanks for posting. It was
    great. :+)

  22. Nice video on composting. I am showing this to the kids as we are planning
    a compost bin, or maybe just a pile for next year to use in the garden and
    flower beds I’m growing.
