Compost Made Easy
Fill a plastic garbage bag with leaves and some grass clippings.
Poke some holes in the bag and wet the leaves.
Scoop a shovelful of soil into the bag and shake it.
Shake the bag every few weeks and moisten the leaves if they dry out.
Next spring you'll have dark, crumbly leaf mold!
