Start Your Compost Piles!

Spring is a great time to get your compost pile started.  All those grass clippings are full of nitrogen and great for mixing into your regular ingredients.

Composting is a easy way to improve your soil structure and fertilize your plants.

Compost systems can be as simple as a box of clippings and shredded newspaper or as elaborate as a self turning drum.  Both systems will work equally well.

Other good ingredients for your compost pile are; leaves, grass clippings, banana peels, broccoli stems, coffee grounds, etc.  In general, anything of a plant based nature.

Yes, easter egg shells are OK as long as the dye is vegetable based and there’s no egg included.  Egg shells will keep snails away too!
