Well the fall garden is making progress. I am however worried about my first little seedlings that I planted.

Does it stink, is it hard, how long does it take, and what do you even put in it?? These are questions that keep swirling in my head and I would love some opinions. Answer the poll below and then if you do compost tell me how you like it. I’m curious! Is this something I should do or steer far away from this pile of…
