Sometime ago I was reading an article, in either Mother Earth News or Harrowsmith, about different types of composters. The article asked what type of composter you are and then gave examples of several types of composting people. One that I remember was the Relaxed (lazy?) composter, this was a person who never turned their compost, but rather, threw it into a pile and hoped for the best. I read that description and thought, That's me! But, then I read the next type and that described a person who had many different kinds of compost containers. Well, with a three bin wood composter, made of recycled wood; two hand-me-down, black plastic type composters; a rotating barrel composter, that my husband built me; and various piles, and bags of leaves around in different stages of decomposition, I thought that one described me quite well too. But then, then I read another description - The Hoarder - and I thought, Ah!
This is a pic of a pile of leaves that my boys brought home for me in the Fall, I only got as far as dumping it in the entrance to my garden. My guys all know that there isn't much that I like more than them bringing me home lawn clippings or leaves. :-)
