And you don’t need to pay top dollar for this amazing soil enricher. You can create your own compost right in your backyard using simple kitchen and garden refuse.
The best way to do that is by using a compost bin.
Building and maintaining a compost pile is the surest, easiest way to become a better gardener. And it’s great for the environment.
Not only will you be producing the best possible food for your garden, but by watching leaves, eggshells, orange rinds, and grass clippings become transformed into rich compost filled with earthworms and other soil creatures, you'll help re-use resources that you might otherwise throw away. Check out dozens of different kinds of compost bin models offered to Tomato Dirt readers from our friends at Gardener’s Supply – and choose the one that works best for you.
