Here are some tips for MYO Compost

Rate this Entry
I originally typed this up as a response to "Share a frugal Gardening Tip." I use MYO compost regularly in my garden, whenever I plant the next crop. Here are some composting tips... I feed the compost heap year round. Here are some helpful (I believe) tips:

1) When I mow in the fall, I bag everything and pile it the back corner of the yard to feed my compost heap throughout the year.

2) Among the many things "compy" likes to eat is newspapers. I clean out my office paper shredder once a month and run newsprint (not the glossy adds) through the shredder until the bin is full. I empty the bin onto the heap and cover with a layer of leaves.

3) Our church serves coffee weekly... I take the grounds home (paper filter as well) and dump it onto the heap.

Also... here's a warning: if you don't like stinky compost, don't use anything from animals, EXCEPT eggshells and manure (only from herbivores). This means, no meat scraps, grease, dog/cat poop (can transmit disease), etc. Also, no bread as it will undoubtedly attract rodents.
