I decided to try composting. For several years I would pile clippings and yard waste in a pile behind a pine tree in the back yard. I would remember to turn it once in while but never did create the "black gold" you read about in the books and magazines. So, this year I bought a black plastic composting bin. Put it down in the backyard in a spot that gets lots of sun. But the weather has been too cold and wet for much gardening so the only things in it are some egg shells, potato peelings and orange peelings. So as soon as the weather changes there will be lots of clippings and leaves to go into it also. Then I will be on my way to creating the "black gold".
