question for my fList:  
Do any of you lot compost?

I'm really diligent about recycling paper/glass/plastic, but I feel like I'm being absurdly wasteful in throwing away so much organic matter. I've been looking at compost containers and tumblers and the like, but it's sort of overwhelming when one has nary a clue.

If anyone can offer suggestions or advice on what to look for, what to avoid, general how to, etc., I'd be most grateful.

I compost, but I admit I'm not that great with it. I keep forgetting the compost bin is there... If I remembered, I might actually put the bunny litter in there, since bunny poo is one of the best fertilizers out there, and doesn't even *require* composting to work well (although composting doesn't hurt).

We never composted as a child, my mother would just put organic trash out behind the woodpile where the stray cats and local woodchuck would eat the stuff, depending upon what it was.

However, my husband has taken to putting the biodegradable coffee filters and coffee grounds in there, it supposedly makes *excellent* fertilizer once composted.

I didn't get a tumbler, I got a cheap plastic one last year, just because i'd never done it before.

I'll let you know if I get anything reasonable out of it. ;)
