If you haven't already made the switch from chemical fertilizers to compost, now is the time. Soon it will be time to plant new seeds and you'll want to have your plant food ready. If you have a small garden a simple homemade kitchen compost should be enough, but if your planning a veggie garden then you'll want to make a large outside bin. *To make your own kitchen bin simply drill lots of air holes into a large bucket or container with a tight fitting lid. Add a layer of loose soil (any old dirt will do), a layer of dry leaves, left over fruit and veggie peels, used coffee grounds, and earthworms. Add water, make sure the lid is on tight, and roll it around to mix. It should be ready to use in about two weeks. *For large outside bins use a large garbage bin. After you make the air holes, cut a square hole in the top side of the bin so that when you turn it upside down it looks like a doggy door. This will be where you access the compost so it must be big enough for a shovel. Next, cut the bottom out. Place, it bottom up, where you intend to keep it (I would suggest somewhere hidden from view) and fill it with the layers mentioned above. Mix it with a pitch fork as you fill it. It might take longer than two weeks depending on how full the bin is.
