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 suppose it depends on what kind of scale you're talking about.

My aunt and Uncle compost. My aunt just keeps a plain, airtight, glass jar by the kitchen sink. After dinner every night, all the bio-degradables go into the jar before anything goes into the trash.

Whenever the Jar is full, she just runs the Jar out to their Compost Pile and dumps it. She's put egg-shells, coffe-grounds, uneaten meat and vegetable matter, fruit-peels and the like out.

They turn the pile about twice a year and use as necessary for the garden and flower beds.
