I've been composting off and on for a couple of years, mostly depending on where I was living and how much space I had (last year composting in the community garden bins). But I've recently bought a home with a fairly small plot in a neighborhood, and I'm determined to find a more permanent solution to my composting woes.
What are other folks doing in relatively urban areas? I have a farmer friend who recommended just starting a pile behind the shed and covering it with sawdust (DH is a woodworker, so there's plenty of this avail), and said that she didn't think vermin would be a problem.... but that doesn't seem possible. And I'm suspicious of the bins- they sometimes seem to attract wasps etc.
