Here are the steps to making our compost bin...enjoy
We started saving items to put in the bin. These are rose stems, leaves and orange peels
We then drilled holes all around the trash can, so the compost can get air
(husband in trashcan not necessary for compost success)

Brown layer of leafs
Then another layer of newspaper
Now we put the bin up on bricks so that the bottom holes can get some air too.
At this point we will be putting our table scarps in the bin when we get them. Some of the table scraps that we will use are:
All veggie peels and leftover cooked veggies
There are many more but this is what we've got in ours so far. I will keep you updated on what we do to help the process along!
