Homemade Compost - The Natural Way To Green Gardening

Our neighbors think we are very odd people when we save grass clippings, leaves, discarded fruit and veggie peels, and now shredded newspaper clippings.


We started a compost pile behind our fence, away from view. We do this for our garden, after it matures in 3 to 5 months with rain and humidity. Once it has matured, it is added to the garden for lawn reseeding, flowers, bushes, and in the veggie garden. So you see everything that was made from nature is placed back into nature. Note: this is all new growth in February and soon will be bright with flowers. The last older picture is all done with mulch.

I have been composting all the mentioned items for a long time. The newspaper have not because I was told the colored print was not safe to use.

Colored inks, like the comics, are fine to use. You just never want to use colored glossies--the shiny, slick inserts, because the have toxic heavy metals in the ink that stays in the ground and supposedly can be taken up by vegetables.
