In case you're interested, I use a Rachael Ray Garbage Bowl to save all my kitchen organics in. I got mine at Walmart. We do not put any cooked food in our compost, that's just a preference of ours.
Also, we live in Texas, so it's neccesary to water your compost in the summer here. Like now in the Spring, if we know its going to rain, we just open one end of our bin and let it rain in. Make sure your bin has drain holes, because too much water is not good either. If its not the rainy season, we water and then stir about once per week or when it needs it.
Miracle Grow's Gard Soil because it was on sale at Lowe's. Bargain!!
Do you compost? If so, do you have any good tips for us? Please leave a comment.
