Composting is great for the environment, and is also a great way to make your own soil for potting and gardening. Contrary to what you might expect, a compost pile or bin doesn't really smell. Ours has a faint "vegetabley" smell to it, but certainly not a bad smell and not one you'd notice unless you stuck your head in the bin.
I stirred it up a little, and after tomorrow's addition of grass clippings, let the composting begin!
Updates to come, of course.
