It's really compost, but if it looks like dirt and feels like dirt, can't I call it dirt? It's my dirt. I made it myself. For three years, I've been adding compostable yard and kitchen waste to the top of the pile in my pallet board compost bin. Even my friends helped. Many times, I received calls indicating I could pick up the compostables they had saved especially for me. (Such thoughtful friends I have!) I picked up buckets and bags filled with grass clippings, pine needles, potato peelings, even lemon rinds, and dumped them all onto the top of the heap already piled up in my compost bin.
