I have learned a little about compost the past few days. I am growing food and food storage in my back yard (more about this to follow), and would like to have my own compost pile. I have always thought compost would be way to complicated for me (at least for now), but I have discovered that it can be fairly simple. In a nutshell, here is what is needed:

1. Space to put the compost
2. A variety of organic material. Variety is the key word, here. I plan to use primarily grass clippings, leaves, dirt (good because it has little critters), and food scraps.
3. Water the compost pile regularly when it is hot.
4. Turn the compost pile each week.

Some helpful websites I have found:

I will let you know how it turns out!
