    I should learn about this too.... since we have to haul our garbage to a dump and pay them to take it too at our new place. This would cut down on some and help my plants too, huh?

    It is soooo easy, I have a cheap plastic garbage can that I cut the bottom out of, and I put composting stuff in it. The slightly "hard" part is to have the right balance of green and brown stuff but with all the leaves we have it really isn't hard just something to keep track of.

    THanks dolphin and Carolyn. I want to start a compost pile this year. It will help my flowers and the herbs and veggies I want to do.
