It is hard to imagine a stronger example of “waste = food” phenomenon than composting. Place food scraps and yard trimmings in a container, ensure it is properly aerated and accessible for microorganisms, wait 6 months to 2 years and -- hooray! -- out comes the mysterious compost providing food and mulch for plants.

Simple as it may appear, making nutrient-rich compost requires an intricate understanding of what ingredients your plants need to remain happy and healthy.
