I joint the Composting bandwagon






Since I started reading gardening blogs all I hear is about the wonders of composting in the last couple of weeks and I been debating weather I should do it. The idea of taking all my garden and kitchen scraps putting it in a container and wait six months for the end product did not appeal to me and besides I don’t have much space in my garden. After reading about a fellow gardener composting on her city apartment balcony, I figured if she can do it I should try it. So here it goes, I hope the 6 months wait is worth it.
I planted a banana tree in my back yard this weekend, these are the small sweet bananas not like the one’s you find in the grocery store.

That is so cute. Do you know how long it will take to produce?

Hi Rusty! I didn't want to comment on every single post but wanted to say that your garden looks great. I'm sure your wife can't complain about the gardening budget when she has such a beautiful garden.

I think you'll like the compost and it may not take 6 months. Stir it up every now and then and be sure to keep it moist but not too wet. I totally believe in composting and it makes me feel good to do something beneficial with all the yard trimmings.
