Collect all your kitchen waste like vegetable and fruit peelings, leaves, egg shells, coffee grounds, cauliflower stems etc and garden waste like leaves, grass cuttings, flowers and put it in the holding unit.This is called pile. You should cover your pile with a layer of soil.
Microbes need 2 kinds of food to do their work. Browns and greens .
Browns are dry leaves, straw, wood chips etc.
Green are all our kitchen waste, green leaves etc
Finished compost has an earthy smell.( pic 2)

You've now inspired me to work on my garden that I've abandoned for quite a while. Check out my blog soon, I'll post about my garden in a couple of days:)
I also wanted to congratulate you on all the awards you received, you really deserved them. It was so sweet of you to share with other bloggers:)

This is a very informative post Padhu. I'll come back to this when I move to my own little house 🙂
Very innovative & creative. Simple & easy method to convert garbage to compost. And thus protecting your family from toxic vegetables. Great Work.
First of all I want to convey my appreciation on your impressive busy life.I wish many more modern young Indian ladies had such useful ideals like yours.
I am amazed at how much work you do To grow plants, to compost, to have interest in health and beauty….
How long did it take to get final compost ? Having a ground for installing the net basket is a very good idea and the end product will be top class.
I use plastic net baskets on the terrace. It takes time to get the final product.

This is a very informative post Padhu, but when we use iron mesh it become rust after 4 to 5 months later. Any alternative?-UB
Grt information, thank you for sharing this information,.U have innspired to to start my garden which I have benn longing for a long time!Thank u once again!
Hey..thanks for that post..While i am seriously looking forward to try this..I want to know that before making the pile…how to collect enough kitchen waste? say if you want to start after collecting the kitchen waste say for a week/2 weeks..how do you do that ? or can you go on adding it on a daily basis ?
As air is required to circulate inside the bin there is no alternative but to paint it thickly periodically to ward off rust and decay of the bin. G.Jagannathan,July 22,2013.
this is the need of the hour but no one realise it. thanks and all the best

You can add cooked food waste also. Make sure to turn the pile and also add dry leaves in between to prevent any bad smell.
