TCOT Backyard Projects: Compost

If you’re like me, spending more time at home to slow the spread of COVID-19 has likely left you with some free time on your hands.

In addition to restarting my herb and vegetable gardens after taking a few years off, I finally started my first compost pile. I’ve wanted to compost for years, but I never felt like I had the time. Now that I’ve been given the time, I realize I no longer have an excuse. And so now I have my own budding compost pile.

Starting my own compost pile taught me a few lessons. I learned these lessons the hard way, and now I’d like to share them with you, so you don’t recreate my boneheaded mistakes.
