Do any of you have much experience with composting? Right now, we just have a big pile in the middle of the garden, but I need to move it soon so we can plant our seeds. The Canadian Tire store sells this compost bin, but I see it's gotten mixed reviews. I know that compost breaks down faster if it's in some sort of bin. Perhaps I should see if someone could build me one--I've seen photos of 3 bins in a row, and the compost is transferred over as it starts to decompose.
Apparently, compost is so valuable that many people call it "black gold." In addition to improving garden soil, it can be used on grass, trees, bushes, and flowers. And you may be surprised by the variety of things that can be composted--dried leaves, grass clippings, fruit and vegetable peelings, egg shells, coffee grounds, tea bags, even paper towels! So it's very good for the environment as well.
