There are many common misconceptions about composting: it can be a lot of work, smelly, and it can get messy. These are only true if you compost the incorrect way. It’s important to follow a simple guide before beginning your compost pile, and only takes a few short steps. Composting is an important way to recycle food and scraps; its a environmentally-friendly natural organic fertilizer that if done correctly can help you have a beautiful and productive organic garden. Whatever you are growing — whether it is flowers, vegetables,fruits, or herbs make sure you are giving your plants organic nutrient rich compost. Composting can save you lots of money too since you don’t have to buy chemical fertilizer that can be harmful to our health and environment.
Personal Creations came up with a visual on what to compost, deciphering from green and brown items, along with what not to compost. Items like meat products and diseased plants are ones to avoid, but straw and fruits and veggies are strongly encouraged. Creating a balance of brown and green items is key to a successful compost pile!
