1. Once you've got your compost bin set up, you might need additional compost equipment. If you're running a worm composter, you might want additional trays for expansion. The worm farm accessory kit includes a scraper for removing compost, a rake for moving worms, and a thermometer to check the temperature.
2. Outdoor compost bins are often open to the ground, which makes good compost sense but doesn't do anything to stop critters from burrowing into the bottom of the pile. Some composters have a base plate that keeps critters out but still lets compost tea sink into the ground.
3. Want to introduce someone new to composting? The composting starter kit has all the composting equipment a novice needs. It includes a kitchen pail for easy transport of scraps to the yard, biodegradable liner bags for the pail, an instruction book, a thermometer to monitor temperature, and a container of compost accelerator.
