If you enjoy gardening, growing your own vegetables or flowers then you understand the benefits of compost. Not only does compost put nutrients back into the soil, it also adds some bulk allowing your soil to hold onto the moisture in the ground. This is very important if the scientists are right and everything is going to become hotter, the thing is without the bulk in your soil as you water, the water is just being absorbed to quickly and not allowing your plants to get sufficient moisture to maintain there growth. Quite a lot of people seem to think that because there garden is small they don’t have the room to accommodate a compost tumbler, but now you can get cheap compost tumblers. These tumblers are very effective at making compost quickly so even if you don’t use a lot of compost, it is still worth it. I would say that if you use any compost at all then it makes sense to convert your kitchen waste into compost for your plants, why throw good compostable material in the trash then go out and buy compost that is just silly.
Looking at a site about composter reviews it is surprising how many composters are out there large, small, aeraters and tumblers they are all there for you to look at. There are even ones that look like a garden sculpture so if you have no room to stash it away you can have it in plain view and it won’t make your garden look a mess. This is particularly useful if you are a patio gardener, just growing a few tomatoes and herbs for the kitchen. Just imagine you have a little piece of artwork on your patio, you finish cooking in the kitchen, walk outside and pop your peelings into your artwork roll it around to mix it and forget about it. Six weeks later open it up and retrieve your compost.
