The Compost Challenge

Ok here we go....Lets see how long it takes for this stuff to decompose. We will be turning the pile everyday to see how long it takes to become compost that we can use in our garden.

The pile is made up of yard trimmings and variety of uncooked fruit and vegetable scraps.

Some experts say that if we turn the pile everyday it will be ready in about two weeks. I am a little skeptical of this as we have some rather larger pieces of kitchen waste that need to decompose.

Check back frequently because during this two week challenge we will give updates as well as helpful information for you to start and maintain your own compost pile.

Let the composting begin!
