“In nature nothing is wasted, nothing is created, everything is transformed” LONG LIVE TO COMPOSTING!

Hey, everybody!

Last Sunday I could check how correct is this quote by Lavoisier (1760 ). There it goes a photo of the fellow and his wife.

But what I really want to tell is about our composting, handmade, efficient, made in a pot and super simple. Just mix soil and organic waste in a closed bucket. You’re ready for home composting!

It has been about 1 month since Carol and I started composting our organic waste (fruit peels and vegetables, coffee strainer, egg shells, paper, etc.). Besides reducing the volume of waste that goes to landfills, composting is a form of recycling valuable plant nutrients.

On Sunday I was digging the compost and eureka!!!!!!! All waste had become a very good nutritious compost for plants. I took the chance and added the compost to the soil of some herbs..

Happy chicory!

Turn over the soil of your plants and put a little compost. It’s very good for plant growth because it means a load of nutrients. Besides, it assists the plant in water retention. This compots input can be made every 6 months.

Well, folks, home composting works and is very good for those who do it, as well as for the plants that will receive it.

TIPS:

1 – If you do not have enough pots at home, use the compost in your building or city gardens.

2 – Chop the shells into small pieces for faster decomposition. Break also the eggs shell.

That’s all for now, folks
