Basic Rules to Learn How to Make Your Compost - flowers-plants-planters

Time or money invested in your garden’s soil always brings the best returns: healthy, vigorous plants and great harvests. And when you keep yard waste and kitchen scraps from the landfill you’re doubly rewarded. You can buy ready-made, organic compost to get a jump start. But it’s easy and inexpensive to make your own with the right materials and proper equipment.

Pretty Handy Girl made a perfect guide for beginners.

So what can be composted? Only raw fruits and veggies (and egg shell) kitchen scraps. Here is the basic list:

  • Kitchen scraps
    • raw fruits
    • vegetables
    • egg shells
  • Coffee grounds and the filter
  • Newspapers, non-glossy cardboard, paper towels
  • Leaves (brown for carbon and green for nitrogen rich)
  • Grass clippings
  • Plant and Flower clippings
  • Yard waste

What can’t be composted?

  • Meats
  • Dairy products
  • Processed foods
  • Plastic
  • Man-made substances
  • Metals

Of course, we suggest you build the perfect compost bin from pallets. Now you can start to get a beautiful garden soil next spring:
