Backyard Farming: Composting: How to Plan, Build, and Maintain Your Own Compost System for a Healthy and Vibrant Garden
by Kim Pezza Author
Give your garbage a second life. Composting is a little complicated, but Kim Pezza, author of Backyard Farming: Composting: How to Plan, Build, and Maintain Your Own Compost System for a Healthy and Vibrant Garden will take you through it step-by-step. First, pick a home for your compost from the many D.I.Y guides in the book or with any of store-bought suggestions she gives. Second, get some worms and establish a cool symbiotic relationship with them and your compost. Then, fill that bad-bin up with a mixture of "brown" and "green" organic matter. Keep an eye on those carbon and nitrogen ratios, and watch the stages of our compost unfold. Finally, sprinkle the stuff on your soil and watch it enrich your whole life! Oh, and F.Y.I.- effective and properly managed compost piles, boxes, or bins won't stink up the neighborhood, so don't let the man tell you what to do with your scraps!
