Money Crashers: Composting 101

My second Money Crashers post for this past week is all about composting, a subject I've discussed here many times in the past. I've written about our preference for cold composting, also known as lazy composting, because you basically just throw everything in the bin and leave it there; about the perils of "killer compost," which contains lingering traces of highly persistent herbicides and can therefore kill your plants instead of fertilizing them; and about the various things we put into our compost that might not be obvious. This new article touches on all those topics, but it's mostly a guide to composting for people who are short on one or more resources:
  • time,
  • space, and
  • money.
It covers specific methods that are useful for busy, crowded, or cash-strapped homes, and it also includes some general info about the benefits of composting, how it's done, and how to troubleshoot your compost pile.

So if you're looking for a nice general guide (either for yourself or for a friend who's new to the compost game), or if you've always wanted to try composting but thought it wouldn't work in your situation, this is the article for you: Composting 101: How to Make Compost & Fertilizer at Home.
