My Mood:
Talking Composting

We have a small garden which I intend to double this year in the spring. I am interested in formally composting (making a bin, caring for it, etc...) My husband asked what the difference and benefit is of doing it that way as opposed to just throwing leaves and food scraps in the garden and just turning the soil over? I am much more environmentally concerned than my dh, he wants to do the most frugal thing (which usually works out in my favor since green is usually cheaper). SO I come to you all, asking for good reasons to do it in a container? I was kind of thinking a worm bin would be fun for my kids...but I want to do what is best for the garden too.
