Finding Nirvana in Nutrition

To begin composting I knew I had to gather materials. I always wanted to compost as I knew I would be saving waste and saving the earth.
The person who did my yard work mentioned they would save the brown composting materials. The brown materials would be put in a pile and be dumped in my compost pile. I started saving my green waste from my kitchen scraps including coffee/tea grounds. It's all about the Carbon to Nitrogen ratio..C:N ratio!
My composting started out in a round fence like structure and I bought a rake just so I could turn my compost. Then later we invested in a more expensive compost. Something like the picture below! It takes a few months to a couple years to get composted fertile soil. It's better to start somewhere than to never get started all!
