Composting Made Easy

Red Worm composting has some great articles on how to start composting.

My husband & I started a container vegetable garden this year. Next year my husband I would like to put in a garden in the ground and have started to compost to prepare. To start with I got an emtpy litter bucket from my neighbor, drilled holes in the bottom & sides (to allow air flow) and placed used coffee grounds (Panera Bread were giving buckets away during the summer) & yard waste (leaves & grass clippings), adding food waste as we accumulate it. About 6 months in, by winter, we had good black compost.
