Chris' compost pile is a simple setup. I simply put up stakes around and then used wire fencing. I left it open in the front for easy access. I used zip ties to hold the fencing to the stakes.
In this type of compost pile, it usually takes a year to produce compost. There are many types of composters you can purchase which will make compost faster. I tend to dig up my compost in the spring and add it to my garden beds.
Things to add to your compost pile:
* Non-Woody Yard Waste
* Grass Clippings (only if your grass has not been treated with chemicals, etc)
* Pulled Weeds
* Garden waste
* Kitchen vegetable or fruit scraps/waste
* Coffee Grounds
* tea leaves
* Bunny Waste
Things to keep out of your compost pile:
* meat scraps or other non-fruit or veggie scraps
* Treated grass clippings
* woody (tree or bush) waste
This is a photo I took in my garden. In my herb garden I have a birdhouse and these Carolina Wrens were starting to build a nest in there. They also seemed to be checking out several other bird houses in our yard, so I don't know if they'll end up in this one or one of the others. I hope they finish their nest!
