    Joey and Holly – very informative video – you sure do have lots of leaves!
    I’m jealous! I have to have my friends collect them for me because I don’t
    have any large trees! I’m sure that will be beautiful black gold come

    That was a concise yet informative video! Thanks for sharing! 

  3. Great tips guys. Most black and white newspapers now adays actually use a
    vegetable ink which make it safe for composting ;-)

    I steal leaves from the municipal compost drop off. I think next year I’m
    going to steal a lot more.

  5. Very good job. Good information. May I make a suggestion. I have 500
    pounds of leaves being delivered tomorrow. Once I put them in the
    location. I always inoculate them. With some of my own garden soil.
    Introducing micro organisms. Directly into the pile helps them to break

  6. Great composting video you two !!!

    rays and bask in the coldness of winter and make me a lil Bin.

    Excellent advice. You’re right – now is a great time to start a compost
    pile. I built another pile this weekend very similar to yours with leaves,
    food scraps, used coffee grounds, and spent brewery grains. You guys have
    great energy!

  10. I love to compost. The dirt is so dark. I do the same as you. In the winter
    there’s a lot of leaves. When I put food or veggies in my compost I cover
    it up with some dirt so it won’t smell. I call that free dirt. lol nery’s
