This is not as mysterious as it sounds. What I’m talking about is how to compost without a composter and how to compost without having a compost heap rotting in the corner of your garden. The method I’m suggesting is ideal for those of you who don’t want to have to see the composter/compost heap doing its thing. It’s a method used by many French gardeners. Here’s how it works:

1. Dig a hole.

2. Fill the hole with your organic kitchen waste, garden clippings and other compostable bits and pieces.

3. Cover the peeling/clippings etc. with soil.

4. Plant something nice on top.

5. Dig another hole and so on.

Simple, neat and very good for your garden.
