Easy garden compost
Keep a compost pile right in your garden to have it readily available. Put a wooden box about 3'x3'x 18"high in the middle of your garden. Put stakes on the inside corners and drive them into the ground so the box sits about 3" above the ground. Throw in lawn clippings, leftover food, etc. and rotate it. The compost will leak out the sides or just spread it on the garden when its ready.
