We seem to have been stuck in doors for ages now, so much so, I decided that no matter what the weather was doing I was going to turn the compost heaps and generally tidy up round the greenhouse!!
So here are two of my bins, the corner one was empty (its actually very difficult to open)and I have moved it away to another part of the garden! But look at the inside of the square one.....
Initially it looks good, that is until you dig to the middle!!! This always happens to us, we are hopeless composters.... the middle is totally dry and unrotted!!! I'm careful to mix layers, it gets the occasional watering! One year we had a nest of mice in there!! I have all the books on how to compost etc etc but still I fail miserably and it really really p****s me off!
Anyway they are all mixed up and re-packed (so to speak). I suppose I just have to keep trying!!!
