Composting at Home - Recycling the natural way saves money and improves your soil at the same time. Composting is a process involving naturally occuring microbes that break down organic materials like kitchen scraps, grass clippings, leaves and wood waste into a dark rich substance called humus - an excellent soil conditioner and fertilizer.
  Composing can be done in a commercial composting container, or by simply piling the organic wastes in a mound.
  Just follow the compost recipes:

Materials That Should Be Composted:
Greens (high in nitrogen) Browns (high in carbon)
manure (cow, horse, & chicken)
grass prunings
weeds
house plants
citrus rinds
vegetables
coffee grounds
coffee filters
tea bags
egg sheels
dead leaves
straw
wood chips
bark
saw dust
newspaper (shredded)
beusg (chipped)
corn Stalks

Materials That Should Not Be Composted:
Bones
oil
fat
dairy
meat and fish scraps
dog and cat waste
grease
diseased plants
weed seeds

The proper blending of greeen and brown materisl allows microbes to work on breaking down the organic materials to form compost - here are the steps:
1. As a general rule combine 1 part green to 3 parts brown - this will help keep your compost odor free.
2. Regular mixing or stirring of compost should take place to ensure the air is reaching the center of the pile.
3. Composting materials should fell moist but not soggy. Compost should feel warm to the touch.
4. Compost is ready for use when it looks dark and crumbly. A test to ensure compost is finshed is to seal a small amount in a plastic bag for 2 days - if no strong odors are released when the bag is opened, the compost is done.
5. Finished compost can be used as a mulch or soil nnutrient
