Put this on the list of jobs – Start a New Compost Pile

compost pile

It’s time to start a new compost pile (unless it is still freezing cold where you live)

Here’s an easy way to get started

  1. Buy a bale of hay or straw.
  2. Add some dried grass clipping and some leaves, green or brown.
  3.  Start adding your kitchen scraps on a regular basis  and watch it take off.   Wrap kitchen scraps in newspaper as you are preparing dinner and the whole lot can go into the compost pile.
  4. Turn the pile every week to allow oxygen into the pile

See how to make a compost pile in more detail.

That is very low fuss and you will be rewarded for your efforts.
