Composting Your Waste
So, you may be asking, what exactly is composting and why is it
important? When I was a little girl I remember my grandma giving me
maybe some coffee grounds, or egg shells and telling me to go and throw
it in the pile out back. (Thank goodness she lived on a farm. I don't
think that would fly in the city!)

I always wondered why. I thought maybe it was for the animals and birds to eat, or just an easy way to get rid of it. What I didn't realize was that it was one of the reasons my grandma had such a beautiful and healthy, abundant garden.
Another thing that I didn't realize was that not only was waste being added to the pile, but the pile needed to be stirred (or aeriated) and other ingredients added to make it steam. I'm not sure if I ever saw steam coming off the pile, but if I did I'm sure my grandma's explanation would have been that it had to "cook".
