So we built our first compost bin/pile. Thanks Jenny for the great article. If you haven't read it Jenny wrote a very informative article for "beginner composters", http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_articles.asp?id=1323.
We split some grasses from my mother and planted them around so as they grow they may hide a little so as to not "offend" my neighbors. It is right by their back patio! Having fun!
