Hey all, please email me if you have any questions on indoor composting..We've done it for 3 years.. it is easy- get some red wiggler worms online, pretty cheap and throw them in a square container about 2 by 3 and about 1 ft deep.. we have 2 going, use leaves and soil from outside for bedding or use coconut husks..it is so easy... you won't have trouble at all, you can't add too much green matter, (food) or it will be too wet. email me if you want to start.. here is a video also, best not to use newspaper, it gets glue like... otherwise the concept is there... this is my friend's solar oven video

I collect kitchen scraps in a jar and sometimes in the freezer. I have pulverized it in a rocket blender but usually I just unscientifically add it to a pile in the garden. (We have several Presto Hoop bins given out by non-profits in our area.) We have a yardshare community vegetable garden so we get a lot of garden waste to add. I use a mulching mower but I do add the grass that grows so well over the sidewalk! I recently got a twig chipper from Harbor Freight. I chip as much of the tree waste as it can handle and am building that up in an arbor and a few other areas. I'd love to do humanure too but that is one step beyond what my beloved wife will endure. www.humanurehandbook.com/

We have a food bin under my kitchen sink for collecting scraps. Every few days I take it out to either the compost ball or the pile. I have been doing this for at least a year.

I use a composting mower, but that's it. My yard is heavily shaded, so I pretty much only have the grass & (shade providing :) ) fruit trees. Not a lot of point to composting.

We have a nice yard with a good chunk of raised bed for a veggie garden.

We assigned a corner of it for compost. We're pretty lazy about it, generally just dump all plant matter there and wait. We used to turn it occasionally at our old place and that worked better.

We also have a compost ball (we used it to move our compost pile since the landlady wanted it gone), and that seems to finish off more quickly even without turning, and gets turned a bit when we're putting stuff in or taking stuff out.

I would love to, but I live in an apartment complex and there is no way of doing it. We are planning to move to a house, if we do, i will definitely be composting and I know I will be quite scientific about it! LOL

I'm curious to learn about the way folks approach composting. Do you compost at all? How do you compost? Are you scientific about it? How long have you been doing it? What do you compost? What don't you compost? How do you collect it? Do you get stuff to compost from others?
