Attempting to Compost (need help!)

So, since we have a garden spot now, we thought it might be a good idea to learn how to compost. I’m not talkin’ about “having a huge pile of banana peels on the counter collecting flies until they decay and I can throw them into the ground already falling apart” composting. But I don’t want to spend tons of money with a high-tech gizmo either. Just somewhere in the happy middle with veggie peels, egg shells, and leftover vegetables in some sort of container that won’t drive the neighbors away.

If anyone has any ideas, I’d love to hear them. Or if you know of a great site I can go to, that’d be great, too. Any info is good! Our family is slowly turning green.
