Did you know that composting is actually really easy once you get the vehicle right?
Ya know what I’m referring too, what you keep the scraps and things in? I tried all the things and almost gave up composting until I found Subpod. It’s an easy garden compost bin that keeps the smell at bay and is a great place to breed earthworms within your bed!
Composting… what’s the big deal?
Composting enriches soil, helping retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests. It reduces the need for chemical fertilizers and encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material.
The reason why I like composting is to make my own garden fertilizer. We save most of our kitchen scraps to do this daily. Since it’s right off of our house, it’s super easy to put our food scraps in there. I like to make things super easy so we will actually do them and the best part is that the kids actually love to help do this and will often take the scraps out there after we eat dinner.
Here is an easy to reference list of what you should add to your compost and what you shouldn’t:
banana peels, bread crumbs, brown paper, eggshells, flower stems, leafy greens, newspaper, tea leaves
charcoal, diseased plants, fats or oils, gift wrap, glossy magazines, meat or dairy, produce stickers
