      I purchased this compost starter to jumpstart my bin this spring. After only one application using the "toss it and forget it" method, I can see it has worked on what was previously a slow pile of veggie scraps, coffee grounds, etc.

        Tried this starter this year since we had trouble with the mix last season. So far, this product has worked well, getting the compost mixture to break down and have the right balance. Would order again.

                  Have two compost barrels, alternate between both, one current 'till full, move to the next, let first work magic then on to second. Don't expect that you will have fresh compost if you keep adding. Don't believe baloney about 90 days---t'aint true., ALWAYS turn contents at least once every 2 weeks. I make my own soil for potting. Sterilized potting soil, 40%; compost 40%, and 20% peat. I do this because I grow in large pots (tomatoes, peppers, cukes, etc. I'm old, don't like to bend, etc.
