Compost is great for vegetable gardens, flower beds, potted plants, refreshing your grass or just to add to just about anything dealing with landscaping at your home. You could buy a compost box or compost bin from a store or online, but why would you? Here is a way to make one that will take very little time and is nearly free.

help with composting
The spaces between the boards of the pallets will help air and water to reach more of the composting soil. Air and water are needed for the bacteria to break down the material into compost. Lack of air can lead to smells.
Do not add protein to the compost pile. It will attract animals and will add a terrible stench.
Try to keep a 50/50 ratio of brown compost material(leaves, dirt) and green compost material (discarded vegetables, grass clippings, egg shells, fruit skins)
If you want your compost to occur more quickly, be sure to turn your compost with a pitchfork and add some earthworms you find.
If you find that you have too much compost, I bet you have a neighbor who could really use some.
Composting not only creates great soil for you, it also reduces what we send to landfills. Do your part to keep the earth green.
