Compost Cleaned Up

photoHolly and Susan spent hours redoing the compost boxes.

The photo shows all the large chunky plant debris that was stuffed into the bins and had to be removed. It would take a long time for such big pieces to decompose.

“Please only put soft material and food scraps (nothing from animals except egg shells). If we all
add this material to out side boxes we will have great new soil next spring,” Susan wrote in an email.

The way our 3 compost bins work is that we add plant debris and scraps to the two outer bins. These get turned throughout the season and the finished compost will then be turned into the center bin.

Let’s keep the compost bins working.

Thank you to Susan and Holly.
