The Basics of CompostComposting has been going on since the beginning of time.
Each year, Mother Nature produces foliage in the spring.
In the autumn months, when the leaves fall from the trees,
and annual plants die back, they begin the process of composting.
In a year, or maybe two, this decayed plant matter becomes the food for a new plant or tree.
This is composting in it's most basic form....
Anyone can compost and just about anything that once lived is suitable for compost.A compost pile doesn't have to be anything fancy. You don't need a special bin or container.
Organic material will eventually break down into humus, no matter how or where it is stored.
However, some sort of barrel or bin will keep your backyard compost pile tidier,
keep the neighbors happier, and discourage rodents, flies, and other animal pests.
