Keeping compost

Post  arla on 9/21/2011, 1:23 am

So, I have to buy compost, plan to start my own soon, but right now buying is going to be the answer, so, how does one keep it, given that in CA we're getting into the rainy season, I'm sure I don't want to be keeping the bags outside in the rain.

Any recommendations for keeping spare compost? Can I just use a garbage can (my immediate thought) since I'm going to be getting about 10cu ft of compost, but on;y need about 2.6 cu feet for my first box, so the rest will be waiting for whatever I plant, or whenever I need it next.

That's where I keep it. Some small garbage cans. And it rained so much last year it would not surprise me if we saw not rain at all! LOL.
