Composting your kitchen and backyard leftovers is a great way to cut down the total volume of waste matter going to junkyard along with supplying you with nutrient rich compost for use in garden. Humans have been doing compost for long time to increase the health of our soil, food, and planet. Now you can also experience the rewards of composting, thanks to this easy guide to the circle of life.

 

Placing kitchen leftovers like fruit and vegetable peelings, egg shells and tea bags in your composter along with grass cuttings and leaves is as easy as placing something in your usual trash can. It's also ecologically conscious and even better, once you have paid for the composter, it's totally free.

 

Once the food items are split up to compost, place the nutrient loaded content into your soil. The breaking down normally takes about a year but can be further accelerated if you make sure you have the proper harmony between green and brown substance in the bin, by guaranteeing the contents of the bin are not too wet or too dry and by mixing the insides of the composter to have it well aerated. Setting up your composter in a sunny position also makes the whole process a little faster.

 

Compost is all set to use in gardens and lawns when the content looks very dark and rich in color and you can’t actually recognize remains of food or yard waste. For gardeners, it makes the difference between fabulous gardens and exhausted looking ones.
