Composting Guru

Time or money invested in your garden’s soil always brings the best returns: healthy, vigorous plants and great harvests. And when you keep yard waste and kitchen scraps from the landfill you’re doubly rewarded. You can buy ready-made, organic compost to get a jump start. But it’s easy and inexpensive to make your own with the right materials and good equipment.

Here you’ll find all you need to know about getting started as well as maintaining the process no matter which composting method you’ve chosen. There’s basic techniques and time-tested wisdom as well as guides to compost tumblers and the various compost aides — the best starters, the most functional and efficient containers, and practical, useful tools like compost thermometers — that will make your composting efforts efficient and rewarding. You can also learn a lot by going through Planet Natural’s complete line of composting bins, tumblers and equipment.

3 Elements for Making Perfect Compost

It’s time to let you in on a little secret: soil building done like this is the perfect lazy person’s gardening project. Unlike weeding or double-digging, which take lots of time and physical effort, a compost pile pretty much takes care of itself. Build it right, and it will transform your growing expectations.

1. Start with a container. We’re dealing with decomposing organic material, folks, so the structure doesn’t need to be fancy. You just need some sort of way to hold all of the ingredients together so the beneficial bacteria that break down the plant matter can heat up and work effectively.

Compost bins are of two types, stationary and rotating. Both types must have their contents turned periodically to provide oxygen and combine the decaying materials. Stationary bins can be as simple as well-ventilated cage made from wire fence sections or wooden crates assembled from a kit. A well-designed bin will retain heat and moisture, allowing for quicker results. Then there’s compost tumblers, easy to turn bins that speed up the process — compost in weeks, not months or years — by frequent oxygen infusions and heat retention. Select one based on how much plant matter (grass, leaves, weeds, stalks and stems from last year’s garden) you have at your disposal, how large your yard is, and how quickly you need to use the finished product.

When using the stationary bin method, locate the pile in a sunny location so that it has as much heat as possible. If it’s in the shade all day, decomposition will still happen, but it will be much slower, especially when freezing temps arrive in the fall. Compost tumblers can also take heat advantage of being placed in direct sunlight.

2. Get the ingredient mix right. A low-maintenance pile has a combination of brown and green plant matter, plus some moisture to keep the good bacteria humming. Shredded newspaper, wood chips and dry leaves are ideal for the brown elements; kitchen waste and grass clippings are perfect for the green add-ins.

Skip meat, fish and dairy for outdoor bins because they tend to attract pests like mice, raccoons and dogs. If you can’t bear the thought of sending your leftovers to the landfill, there are clever systems that turn them into superfood for your plants.

If you’re using a simple container, it’s best to start heaping the ingredients right on the ground, starting with chunky material like small branches or woody stems on the bottom for good airflow. Every time you add green material, add some brown as well to keep a good moisture balance and create air pockets.

It’s a good idea to give your new pile a jump-start to get the process started. There are several great activators that are ready to go right out of the box. No need to mix it in well. Fold in a couple shovelfuls of garden soil rich in organic matter and let the natural process begin. (See moisture below.)

3. Remember a few simple chores. Taking care of a compost pile is extremely basic, but a wee bit of care makes a huge difference. Add material regularly to give the happy bacteria some fresh food to consume and enough insulation to keep the process warm.

Turn the pile with a pitchfork or compost aerator every week or two to make sure that all of the materials are blended in and working together. After you’ve mixed things up, grab a handful to see if it’s slightly damp. Too little moisture will slow the decomposition process and too much will leave you with a slimy mess.

In a few months, your finished product should be a dark, crumbly soil that smells like fresh earth.

Avoid Common Mistakes

It’s hard to mess up compost, but we’re happy to offer a little direction so you get off to the best start.

  • Don’t start too small. The breakdown process needs a critical mass in order to do its job. However, certain bins work well for small amounts of material, so choose a product for your specific needs.
  • Keep things moist. It’s easy to walk away and forget that there’s an active process going on, so check the pile regularly, especially during hot, dry weather (see Managing Moisture).

What Does it Mean to Have a Holistic Lifestyle?

I really enjoyed reading this post. Very informational and quite interesting.

The Holistic Housewife

“No matter how much it gets abused, the body can restore balance. The first rule is to stop interfering with nature.”

Holistic… it’s a popular buzzword, and if you tend to read anything geared towards natural health, whole foods or alternative healthcare, it’s probably a word you see thrown around a lot. But what does it really mean? It’s attached to all sorts of subjects, without many clear explanations about what it entails or why it’s important. I’m hoping to help in that regard.

What does the house numbers mean

Remember the house where you lived before. Each of them has its own special atmosphere and energy. Some were quiet and cozy, others – like bright and inviting to guests. Numerologists believe that the character of the house directly affects the number.

In order to determine the numerological number of his house, add up the numbers that make it until a single digit. For example, if your house number 56, then the numerological number will be equal to 2 (5 + 6 = 11; 1 + 1 = 2).

Particular attention should be given a house number, in which there are duplicate numbers, e.g. 11, 22 or 33. According to numerologists, such numbers do not need to add, because they represent a unique number, which has its own characteristics.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a light yet powerful Japanese form of natural healing that promotes stress reduction, relaxation, gaining clarity & focus, and many other healing & activating benefits.  Meaning “Universal Life Force Energy,” Reiki (pronounced ray-key) exists within and all around you.  The practice of Reiki involves the light placing of hands on the body, or over the body, to balance, shift, strengthen, and/or restore energy throughout the body, connecting the energy systems and the energy centers in the palms of the hands.  The practitioner acts as a channel or conduit for this “Universal Life Force Energy” with the intention to heal; in this sense, Reiki can never harm – it can only help.

Energy healing dates back thousands of years ago toward practices that Tibetan monks would utilize.  (Re)Discovered in the early 1900s by Dr. Mikao Usui (of whom the Usui [Shiki Ryoho Reiki] System of Natural Healing is named), Reiki has been passed from practitioner to practitioner through master trainings/attunements.

While Reiki does provide many healing benefits, it is not meant as a substitute for medical advice/diagnoses or medication; rather, it can be practiced in complement with your medical practitioner.  A session involves the client lying down on a table, similar to massage, keeping open and/or meditative to energy work.  Light touch or no (auric) touch is used, based on personal preference. 

A one-hour Reiki session can produce the effects equivalent to 4 hours of restful sleep.  It can remove blocks in the body – physical, mental, emotional, creative, and/or spiritual; foster peace and compassion; relieve tension; empower goals and intentions; and heal past or present conditions.  Sometimes you will experience physical sensations, sounds, messages, visions, all connected with the intention guiding the practice.

You do not have to believe in Reiki in order to experience the value/benefits from it, although a willingness to receive allows for a strengthened energetic connection.  Reiki does not have any specific attachment to any spiritual or religious affiliation; it can only enhance your current spiritual/belief system.
