    LET IT ROT

Not only does it reduce waste - but it also builds up the soil tremendously.

Compost also has the ability to suppress plant diseases such as damping off, powdery and downy mildews and late blight of potatoes. You also have trouble shooting tips throughout the book to help with any problems, but as Stu tell us - successful composting requires the realization that no matter what you do, no matter how many mistakes you make, you are still probably going to come up with reasonably good, usable compost.
