compost_binI’m researching “How to Compost”. Okay, this may sound silly but I’m afraid it will attract rats. A couple of sites I visited said that to ensure rats stay away not to include fatty foods such as butter and of course no meat. The other suggestion is to have a closed bin or surround the compost bin with wire mesh. The best compost bin (according to Consumer Report) is  Smith & Hawkin Biostack.

    Yomara, we are doing worm composting at our house. It is a great project for kids; it’s enclosed in a large tupperware storage bin, so there’s no need to worry about vermin! 😉 As our worms procreate, we can share so you can get started!
