Overview: (from back of book) This is a classic guide to turning household waste into gardener’s gold! Since 1975, Let It Rot! has helped countless gardeners recycle waste materials like household garbage, grass clippings, and ashes to create useful, soil-nourishing compost.
Likes: This book talks about the science, the how’s and whys of composting, as well as how decomposition works. I appreciated the examples of various types of compost bins and the troubleshooting chart. Before reading this book, I was unfamiliar with how to go about composting successfully. I have found it very helpful.
In Closing: I recommend this book for anyone wanting to know the how’s and whys of composting. If you are looking for just an instructional how-to book, be aware this book is more than that. While it does give examples with instructions for putting together a compost bin, it goes more in depth explaining the science of it.
