Welcome to the Compost Bin Blog! Hi, my name is Anthony and I’m a compost addict. As far as addictions go, this one is actually pretty useful. Every year my vegetable garden does great, my trees and shrubs are healthy and strong, I don’t have to worry about the kids playing in the yard because I don’t use any herbicides or pesticides and I’m also reducing the amount of waste that’s being sent to the landfill.
I started composting shortly after I started gardening. Hauling bags and bags of top soil and composted manure from big box stores every weekend wasn’t my idea of a fun hobby so I looked into composting for my organic soil needs. Turns out it was a good move. Now all my yard waste and kitchen waste goes into my compost bins. And the compost that I make is used to keep my plants looking great.
They say that when you start blogging you should pick a topic that you enjoy. Compost was that topic for me and I haven’t looked back.
So if you want to read about one man’s take on composting and gardening, feel free to stop by and see what I’m up to. And let me add that I'm far from being a Compost Expert and I'm always looking for new things to try. If you have any compost or gardening ideas or tips be sure to send them to me at CompostMan [at] gmail [dot] com.
Here’s some of my favorite posts to get you started.
