I’m a big fan of composting. I like the idea that I’m keeping the nutrients from my yard in my yard, or that I’m adding to the health of my yard by composting much of the food that I buy.
In Phoenix, you need to think more about heat and moisture than in other parts of the country.
Of course, the big news about getting a compost facility operator is that it could lead to more composting services for those of you who don’t have the time, room or inclination to do your own composting.
This issue does not necessarily impact home sales or purchases. You don’t for instance, need to have a compost pile inspection from a licensed compost pile inspector. But, if you have a compost pile and you are selling a home, you’ll want to make it look attractive.
I such a nerd about this stuff, that I made a video about composting about 8 years ago. Well, not so much that I’d want to be a compost facility operator.
So, while you are waiting for the next season of Game of Thrones to come on here’s something you can watch. In the video, I cover three different types of compost systems that I’ve used and the results that I’ve had.
As for the movie, I’d like to thank all of the people who made this production possible: the director, the key grip, assistant key grip, the stage hands and union lighting guys…
