I was wondering if I really needed a container or a fenced in area for a composting heap or why couldn't I just put the piles in the area I plan on gardening? Also, I live in Illinois and couldn't get my melons to grow without getting mushy and going bad. Any ideas why? Anybody ever try doing a garden inside in winter and trying to cover with old aquarium like a terrarium. Wooden flower box on bottom and aquarium on top. Any ideas if it would work? I know it wouldn't look the best probably but an idea.
