Feeding the garden fantasies
A year’s worth of vegetarian kitchen scraps, garden & lawn trimmings, mushrooms, discarded pears, kelp & seaweed, etc., has been mixed with recently fallen leaves.
Will mix it a few times over the next couple months- then cover it when it gets too wet.
Tearing down the old pile day here.
Year round project-
Smaller bins hold the daily kitchen scraps and items from the garden/lawn. They will wait until fall leaves are collected before they are mixed in.
Some items like avocado seeds will get run through again.
See you next year.
Lawn mushrooms are a welcome addition to compost. Next- we’ll gather leaves & start a new pile.
I have been learning about composting for about two years now. This has been a very helpful book: Composting (Bob’s Basics)
