Why Composting in Fall is a Good Idea

Fall is a great time to get stuck into the compost.  A little bit of effort now means that you can put your feet up over winter and wait for the magic to work with your compost.leaves for composting

Composting is actually a really good way to get rid of all those fallen leaves so find the rake that is lurking at the back of the shed and start some raking and pruning and cutting back .

Remember to layer the pile and to include a good ratio of browns (carbon materials) to greens (nitrogen rich materials).  There’s more info about this here.

Sometimes in Fall the browns or carbon rich materials may outweigh the greens so keep an eye on the balance.

Remember that greens also includes scraps from the kitchen.
