What Materials Should I Use When Composting

April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 84

Composting is the production through decomposition of plant matter newspapers and other items that can be used to replenish the soil with nitrogen. It is a process that can take week's months and even years, depending upon the material that has been composted. In this article you will first learn about the materials that you should use as compost for your garden or farm. Then you will learn about which articles that you should not use for your garden or farm.

The materials that you should use in your garden or growing area:

Shredded newspaper

Old straw

Fall leaves

Shredded cardboard

Teabags, coffee grounds, eggshells

Use paper towels, use newspaper shredded

Caged animal manure (not too much rabbit or poultry manure)

Vegetable and fruit waste

Starchy materials like bread, pastor, rice and potatoes

The reason why you choose these items is because of the ease at which they decompose and quickly turn into a good healthy soil. You want to make sure that you keep the items moist and allow them to rot and decay for between one and two weeks before you add worms.

Composting is a way of building valuable nutrients that will one day take you and your family. By using compost on your vegetable gardens you'll manage your waste as well as provide for your future meals.

Material you do not want to place in your compost:

Human or pet waste

Non-biodegradable materials

Dairy and meat

Oil or grease

Harsh chemicals

These materials can not only destroy your plans they can kill your worms and be a hazard to you and your family. Especially the harsh chemicals which can turn your help the garden area and healthy plants into a withering sickly pile of disease.

Basically if you wouldn't stick it in your mouth if it was semi-fresh, I would not put it in the compost bin. Human or pet wastes may contain bacteria or diseases that you won't see until your plants are already in trouble. Composting needs to stay healthy, thought about as being healthy and planned to ensure that your composting efforts are profitable for you and your family.

If you remember you are what you eat, then you will remember that your plants are what your composting provides for them to be healthy. So by providing the good composting material of shredded newspaper, shredded plant matter, leftover fruits and vegetables, combined with water and healthy bacteria, your garden as well as you will flourish.
