Composting. So simple, at yet so complicated. On the one hand, I feel like it’s really easy to just throw together some biodegradable, nutrient-rich material, wet it, and let nature do it’s thing. On the other hand, there are a lot of important considerations to keep in mind when adding to compost piles, and there are items that are not great to have in your compost pile, for many reasons.
While for the most part, it’s not too complicated to start your own compost pile, there are are few “what not to do” considerations to keep in mind, and I thought this infographic from MarcLanders.com was a great little guide. It’s got some items that are great to add to compost piles, some items to avoid, and some items that you can add, but require special preparation, and the instructions on how to do that.
If you want to grow your own compost to naturally amend and fertilize your soil, it’s not too tricky to do it right, just follow these simple guidelines and you’re sure to have success. Enjoy!
