Warm welcome!! I'll share a composting story with you from my past. When I lived in a small rental I used a garbage can for compost and didn't maintain but still had great compost. We poked holes in the bottom for drainage and then but a small 'door' in the bottom - cut out only 3 sides of a square toward the bottom so we could scoop out the oldest compost that was at the bottom. Left it uncovered behind the garage and filled it with leftover vegetables scraps and fall leaves. We wound up getting a second one and filled one while using the other.

I just joined the team & I can't wait to learn from your expertise! I'm very interested in gardening & have many a garden bed in my yard, but I'm always learning. I've never had the knowledge or finances to do things 100% properly. I haven't amended my soil which I know is a big no-no, mainly because I haven't been able to afford to buy compost regularly. I haven't started a compost pile because there's just no convenient spot in my yard & frankly I don't know that I can commit to maintaining it. Geez, I feel like I'm at an AA meeting confessing or something!
Anyway, I love plants. I tend to like the unusual-looking or different colored plants most.Some of my favorites in my yard now are my blue hydrangea, Sundown echinacea, black scabiosa, red scotchbroom & blue wisteria tree.
