I’ve really wanted to compost for a long time but never got around to it. Now that I’m a week into this program I have found myself with a lot more vegetable scraps and thought that this was the perfect time to figure out how to compost.
I found this on Young House Love and thought it was worth a try.
I had the bin in my basement already. (If I was buying a new one I would have gotten a navy or grey one to blend in a little more.)
I drilled some holes in the top,
and the sides.
Then I added some shredded paper
and topped it with some dirt.
I stuck it in a sunny spot in my yard and now I wait.
To make things easier, I put this cute green pail (also already on hand!) on the kitchen counter to gather scraps.
I’m really hoping this works! Dirt is expensive and I would love to make my own!
