I have tried several different ways of composting. Some are more successful and some are less. Some are also more work than others. I have made the simple compost pile for several years. It did not get turned on a regular schedule, but it made compost. When it was really neglected, the bermuda grass crept into it and loved it. We would finally get it moved and of course the bermuda was pretty easy to pull out of the compost.
Since we haven't alot of time, my last few years, I have simply buried all the compost materials in one of the raised beds. I think this is called the sheet method. I simply dig a hole and dump in the kitchen wastes. I cover it with the soil from digging another hole right next to it. Now there is a hole ready to receive the next dose of kitchen waste. I move through the whole bed that way. When that one is finished, I may stir it up before I plant it. I move the composting operation to the next raised bed. My mother used to do this in a flat garden and it works just as well.
Here is a connection to some good advice regarding composting methods. Choose the method that suits you best. Composting is part of the cycle of renewing the soil. You can not expect to grow nutritious vegetables year after year and never put anything back into the soil. That is why a few generations back, all the farms raised animals as well as crops. It was a symbiotic relation. The crops fed the animals, and the animals fed the crops. 40-50 years ago, most farms had hogs, cattle, chickens, and field crops. I well remember my Father hauling manure from the loafing barn. I remember cleaning out gutters in the milking barn. I also remember cleaning out the hog buildings. This all went into the manure spreader and was spread on the fields in the winter time. In those days, both beef and dairy cattle grazed in the fields. In winter, the beef cattle cleaned up the cornfields after harvest.
We still like to spread a little animal manures on the gardens. We seldom have enough compost and there is alot of life and minerals in the manure to help the soil life.
Get yourself some heirloom seeds, prepared for long term storage and be ready to grow your own food.
