Making The Most of Your Garden Waste

I have lots of plants in my garden and all over our yard and more often than not, I used to do a lot of trimmings and weeding on my plants.  I usually collect all my garden waste and either throw these directly to the garbage can or burn it off to get rid of the insects especially the mosquitoes.  But recently, as I embark more to vegetable gardening and as I try to update my garden, I am on a look out for more ideas and ways to make my gardening adventure more exciting.  I'm getting a lot of tips on how to properly take care of my plants and how to propagate them easily. One of the best tips that I got was how to make my garden waste into fertilizers and I find it really useful since I've been having a lot of garden waste from my daily garden activities.

Composting is the main key here.  I have to collect all the dried leaves and stems that I got out of trimming my plants and put these on an empty large plastic bin. This has to be topped with soil and repeat the process until you are able to convert these garden waste into fertilizer which will definitely add up to the richness of your soil.  I think this is a good way of making the most out of your garden waste. You are able to help the community by producing less garbage and at the same time, you are able to give something useful back to the garden. 

Isn't this awesome?
