Question:What kinds of things can you compost for use in your garden?

Asked by bstarr on 2/15/08 1 Answer»

Answer:

You can compost most vegetable and fruit scraps, eggshells and organic matter from your kitchen.

Do not use meat, dairy and the like. Not only will your compost pile smell very bad, but it will attract unwanted pests.

A good resource for composting is compostguide.com.
