Hello Everyone:

I'm planning my first garden and would love to use the practice of companion planting. I've read that you can pair sunflowers with cucumbers, and if so, I would like to plant so Russian Mammoth sunflower. Based on my garden plan on smartgardener.com, the cucucumers are taking much space. Is is possible to train the cucumbers to grow up the sunflower?

Yes, it is plastic. I don't have room for worms. The bin is outside, and I was told that red wrigglers can't stand the cold. I live in PA. Is this still possible?

Hello all. I am new to permies.com, permaculture, and composting. I just got my certification in permaculture design, and am eager to put it to use. One thing I did was start some compost. Since Principle #6 is "Produce No Waste", I figured I can utilize that principle by taking the soil used to grow tomatoes, peppers, and herbs in my container gardens, put it in a receptacle (instead of buying a composter that costs $100, I decided to take a 32 gallon storage bin, and put holes on the sides and bottom), and put my kitchen scraps and other organic matter into that soil. Can I successfully make compost this way?
