Our composting project has been very successful. We have three 55 gallon tumble-style composting bins. We have been sending about 2/3 less to the landfill since we set up our three tumbler composting bins (see previous post). We have made several batches of rich fertilizing compost for our lawn, garden, and small orchard.
Here is a list of what goes in our compost bin:
- We compost all of our lawn clippings, fallen leaves, and even small branches. All of the debris from pruning and trimming and edging go into the compost bins.
- Since we both have food allergies, we cook almost all of our food from scratch, so we have a lot of vegetable and fruit waste such as peelings, cores, root ends, seeds, and so on. That type of waste is perfect for the compost bin.
