I want to start composting food scraps and garden scraps (stuff that over ripens before I get to it). I have no idea where to start.
I was surprised that I couldn’t find much help through the gtt search. I have been meaning to look into this for awhile but I haven’t gotten around to it until now.
So, any do’s or don’ts? I am guessing I shouldn’t throw a half eaten beef roast on the pile, maybe stick to veggies? Do I need to add grass and leaf clippings?
Do you just add the fresh stuff to the top of the pile, or do you stir it all in? When do you start a second pile?
How far from the house should this be?
Any tips are appreciated as I begin researching this. Thanks in advance!
