first compost batch

This is beautiful, rich compost! Now I will use this to begin a small veggie garden. More is to come. That's the great thing about compost. You can always use more, and you can constantly make more.

What I learned: Kitchen scraps naturally are wet. You don't need to add much water to keep compost moist. In fact I needed to add a lot of dry green waste (in our case grass clippings) to make it just the right balance. You just have to experiment.
