Friday, September 27, 2013 at 5:57 p.m. and Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 9:35 a.m. I have a confession to make. I'm not an active composter.
I'd like to think the piles of organic matter I put together in fall will heat up and break down quickly, but invariably other chores take my attention and they slowly decompose to eventually be useable. This method works, but there are other alternatives for making compost right in the garden for those of us who aren't interested in layering, watering, and turning our compost piles to heat to perfection.
