DIGGING OUT THE COMPOST BEGINS THE CLEAR UP OF SPENT VEG GROWTH – THIRD WEEK IN OCTOBER 2010

Last Sunday 17th October was a perfect dry crisp sunny day to work in the garden. Out came the compost and grass got cut and green roof on shed got trimmed back too. This growing pile of  cut greenery will in due course become layers in the multi decker ‘sandwich’ along with kitchen organic material currently stored  and breaking down in the compost tumbler. The pile of compost does contain some woody remnants which need more time to break down into a useable form. So I’ll extract these by garden fork and mix them back into the new batch of compost.

  1. This is excellent stuff. I have been growing my own fresh food for several years now and have only recently set up my own website and blog about it. Your site is helping me to remain inspired to continue and I love the layout and quality content.

    • Thank you Andrew,
      Delighted to find your site too. Especially glad to read what it says about asparagus. I’m frustrated by my efforts with asparagus growing. With your encouragement and tips, I shall have a go again next spring.
      Keep in touch,
      Trevor
