Lazy composting

This guy is exactly of our way of thinking. If you're patient, there's never any reason to work hard on a compost pile, or to overthink what you're willing to throw into it.

I have a compost pile going in the eaves of my house. Every fall, my trees carefully dump a major portion of their leaves into them, and every spring, I get good, rich, black soil out of those eaves.

Easy, peasy.

I've had a spot like that going for years in a corner of the yard. Eric- yeah, the gutters are excellent compost troughs- I just hate collecting it.

I'm with you guys: my gutters in Houston used to produce the most amazing black, rich, loam.

We built up here, beachhouse-style, so our gutters are above the low-growing live oaks. Good thing, too, because the gutters supply our cistern, which is the water supply for the house.
