Thanks for the great suggestions. I love compost and am constantly looking for new inputs into my systems. Currently, I import horse manure from a friend's backyard ponies, produce-section wastes from a neighborhood grocery store and sawdust from a local custom cabinet company. I also import my neighbors' leaves in the fall and as many of their grass clippings as they will allow. This stuff is too valuable to waste.

Cold frame on top of a compost bin! What a great a idea. I bet you the plants love it. I want one.

Hi David,

Ha! That's the same compost system I also prefer. But my wife and her sister and mother decided they liked the idea of giving me all their kitchen waste a few years ago, so I had to get a bit more complicated.
I do like the nice compost I make now though. I prepared a planting bed this morning and it was positively luxurious to be able to work a big bag of sifted compost into the bed. Even before the seeds sprout the dirt reeks of healthiness and productivity.
I've always had trouble getting gardenias to flourish, but since I've been mulching around them with compost, the plants are much healthier and produce a lot more flowers.
I do still have a big pile of rough refuse/compost in one corner of the garden, and that's where I'll grow some squash next year,

I am not so perticular about my compost. After about a year of sitting in the corner of the yard I just bury it in the raised garden bed and cover the top with good black soil. After covering the bed with mulch in the spring it's ready to plant.
