In an effort to reduce our trash and begin the gardening process, we bought a composting bin the other day. We found one at Home Depot for about $50. We snapped it together (reminded us a little of the plastic playhouse our girls had years ago) and set it under a tree several yards away from the garage - close but not too close.

Composting is very easy providing you follow a few simple rules:

  • You can compost leaves, dry grass, weeds, garden plants, fruit and vegetable matter, egg shells, tea bags, and coffee grounds.
  • You can’t compost meat, fats, bones, fish, dairy products, or cooking oil.

You just throw it all in and let nature do the rest. After a few weeks, we should have usable compost for the garden.
