Compost Jump Start

During the winter I set a large trash can outside my kitchen door. I place my food scraps (compostable ones) in this during the winter. There is no smell as it rarely gets above freezing in Vermont during the winter. I also pile up dead branches and holiday trimmings (trees, boughs, and corn stalks) from fall clean up. Adding in the branches and such from spring clean up. I borrow a wood chipper in the spring and chip all the wood then mix it with the now full trash can of scraps and I have a huge headstart on my compost pile.
