Buy four wooden pallets that companies often sell as cheap as $5.00 each and wire the corners together to make a box. In five minutes you will have an instant compost bin that is big enough for a sizable garden. You can leave one side unwired for the door if you like. Things that can be put in the compost include grass clippings, coffee grounds, tea bags,leaves, vegetable scraps, and fruit. Always mix with soil and turn from time to time. Never put things like meat or cooked products in the compost. I've had a compost for the last 20 years and it never has attracted any rodents, skunks, or racoons.
