Composting, It's addictive. Last year I decided to start growing a few vedge to remind me and the family how food 'SHOULD' taste, a few potatoes, runner beans, salad plants etc, I also sent off for my free composter from my local council and duly filled it. Alas I didnt layer or aireate so it didnt do too well, I think it was also a bit too dry, however I have now bought a larger bin and accelerant and divided all the old stuff between the bins therefore giving it all a good turning. I've since added loads of shreddings, woody and paper, especially all my personnel stuff, theres no better place for it, all the dead bean plants, kitchen waste etc and damped it down well with the accelerant and it is going well. I simply can't let a day pass without popping down the end of the garden and having a look inside the bins....I even lay in bed thinking about what to add next, Its taking me over, I think I need HELP!!
