Kitchen Composting For Beginners

Why compost? It is simply wonderful for planting a back yard garden! It amends the soil better than anything you can buy. Once a bin is ready, I just take it apart and spread the compost pile right in the same area. The I relocate the bin to another spot in the garden.

    I have discovered I have maggots and some other weird looking worm in my composter. I know earth worms are good for the composter but these are not earth worms. What should I do? Empty out composter and start again? Spray it with insert spray? Let it be and the maggots will die out? I'm open for suggestions.

      Don't ever spray compost. ..First, identify the insects in your compost pile. There are other white larva which are not maggots. Do you have a picture? If they are maggots, what type of food did you put in? Is your compost pile covered? Please answer these questions and I can give you more guidance.

    I use vinegsr to clean with & wondered if the paper towels soaked with vinegar can be used in composting, also is peat moss a good source for the brown ratio. Thank you

      The paper towels are fine. ..and so is the peat moss, but remember peat moss is not considered a sustainable reasource, so you may want to use coco coir comes from discarded coconut shells.
