How to make homemade compost easily

 Compost is an essential ingredient for gardening . While there are are number of options for fertilizing your plants , organic compost stands out best with respect to the fact that it not only promotes the plant growth it helps in improving the quality of soil. 


It is pleasant to know that inclination towards gardening has tremendously increased after the pandemic happened as staying home was a prerequisite for the situation . Home made compost is one of the best product for gardening  that should be taken seriously by the avid Gardeners due to many underlying advantages it has in your garden.

Process of making Homemade compost

There are many ways in which  you can make compost at your home without requiring anything to buy from the market. 


The best way which is practically possible and gives you good result at the end of complete process is piling up dried leaves , vegetable and fruit scrapes in a vacant space or in a bin .Now adding little water in every ten days and then  we should just  observe the decomposition process of all of the stuff         happening gradually .  The entire process of turning dried leaves and scraps in to usable compost   may take somewhere between 180 to 200 days depending upon the weather conditions. 

    Important things to be considered while making home made compost :                                                         

 - It should be considered that while adding food and plant waste like vegetable and fruit scrapes  in the process of making compost items involving products obtained from  animals directly or indirectly should be avoided    in making compost,

- It should be considered that composting process should be carried on while keeping covered the compost bin   for the promotion of decomposition process effectively.             

Meanwhile Snapdrgons are filled with blooms 



And its time to bid adieu to Jungle babblers

  3. Ein Kompostbehälter sollte in jedem Garten stehen und Komposterde ist ein wertvoller Dünger. Was der Garten hergibt, soll man ihm auch wieder zurückgeben.

  4. At one time, I just used dried leaves, used coffee grounds and garden soil to make compost. The two birds in the picture, I have never come across such kind here.

  5. What a wonderful yellow sunset. I have a compost or two in my garden. Wishing a sunny weekend.

  6. It has been a while I do not make compost.
    Your photos are so beautiful!
    Thank you for stopping by

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. It's also good to note that if you have the time and patience, just piling up a lot of garden debris in a big heap, big things and small, after a year's time you will be able to pull out nice black compost from the bottom of the heap. Zero work! Just keep piling stuff on top. Nature's way. You do need an area to pile up, but otherwise this is the simplest method of all.

  8. Years ago in another house we had several dozen trees on our small lot. We made compost from the leaves and it was amazing. We would start out with a huge pile about four foot tall and it would be only a few inches by planting season.

  9. We have a compost pile and it is the best. I am getting ready to use a lot of it with my spring planting. Thanks for linking up.

  10. Thanks for the tips. Ours is just starting. Those are really amazing looking birds!

    Your link is a welcome addition to My Corner of the World' this week!

  11. Hello,
    My hubby has made a compost pile using the leaves, it was great. I love the pretty snapdragons. The Jungle Babbler are interesting birds, I like their eyes. Beautiful sky shot! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your day. Have a great new week!

  12. Beautiful bird photo! So close up & detailed. That snapdragon is gorgeous too. Have a glorious week ahead & thanks so much for linking up at IRBB this week!

  13. For the compost to be ready for my small garden I would need to start it well in advance of the gardening season when it is cold so I don't make it. I did try one year but started too late. Of course the compost was ready much later and usable but not very much of it in my small bin. Your garden always looks wonderful and I'm sure the compost you prepare really helps. Happy gardening to you.

  14. One time I saw a bowl with vegetable discards on my daughter's counter. I wanted to take it to the trash, and she told me "no, I want to save it!" Then she told me about their compost pile in the backyard:) I love not having to go to the store for it:) Thank you for sharing this needed thing for plants to grow well, Jesh

  15. That's so interesting! We've tried creating compost in the past. We were kid of successful, but then life got in the way and it went by the way side.
