Things that you did not knew you can put in your composting

June 21st, 2011 - 

Green garden waste and also food scarps can be put into your compost bin: potato peelings, dried flowers, shredded paper or cardboard, egg shells or coffe grounds, these are just some examples. Soil is all the time renewed due to this organic matter that includes leaf filters, dead bugs, fallen branches or fruits that are rotten.
Bacterias in the soil transforms all these into rich brown humus which is so fertile. Gather everything you have for the compost mixture and store all you have in a compost bin made from recycled plastic. Sometimes, these bins have a special frames that allow the bin to be rotated. It is always better to have a shady place to leave the bin because the
light can slow down the reaction but in the same time, be sure the area is ventilated. You can add a compost worms available at gardening centers and even some layers of soil. This will accelerate the process. In about 4 months you will have the organic matter. Via Greeniology, How to live well, be green and make a difference, a book by Tanya Ha. Picture from here.
