I'm one of about 3 women on our allotment and every other bloke has a different idea. Being a woman I'm following my gut instinct. after all what's the worst can happen? I'll laugh if mine grow better! I miss read my carrot seed packet, [ sew in rows 30cm (1') apart] can you see what I did?

I love this gardening game tee hee

Congratulations!  You will never understand until you get blight!

Try this and sign up. Long may you be blight resistant and enjoy the many new potatoes.

Oops. Sorry  1Runnybeak1

Forgot to say thank you. 

There is a lot of things I want to say to other members on here but I think I might be too blunt, so are compiling my words carefully. We all know we only ever have good intentions for other members on here. Sometimes it's hard to express our love for these people and people like me find it hard to put it into words, no matter what I am trying to portray over. 

Icons just do not do it !!! 

I often offend but that is never intentional, People often read text and do not understand the moment you are in when writing things. Icons are a help but at the end of the day I say what I thing and know to be true. 

If that is too harsh for people then, there is always the ignore button. 

I have resorted to writing my thoughts out beforehand in my drafts so not too cause offence but its hard when i can't see your face and understand your expressions.

I'm as blunt as a breeze block and it often offends but it is the truth!

I also love to learn something new everyday.

Directly below this box is something called Terms and Conditions | Code of Conduct.

You and just like me have never read them, but we ticked the box!

It's nice to be nice though and this is how it should work.


P.S. Difficult to express my thoughts into text, without writing my thoughts out to others and checking my spelling first, now!

p.p.s. There are so many people that I need to talk to and (love on here)  But this is not my way (hope you understand) 

I will not let crack book and Twitter, rule my life or any other MSM I take in. 

They can lie but I trust you lot first.

Kind regards

You could always heat the compost to sterilise it but that would kill off all the good bacteria (and weed seeds) but leaves, depleted nutrients, in the compost.

Its ideal for seed compost and you could always introduce good bacteria by adding top soil. (this puts the weed seed variable back into the compost though)

Definitely kills the pests though and leaves a good potting medium. Worth a thought.

Thought it was Rosebay Willowherb to start with and did not have the heart to tell you.

Is this compost ready?

Getting the right ingredient mix is one thing but to get the best results you need to add oxygen by turning the compost heap. This gives the good microbes the air they need to do their job and break the compost down. 

What you have there JenniBee is nearly complete, but as Hostafan1 says it is best used as a mulch so the worms and other microbes in the soil can get at it. 

Can I ask how long did it take to get to that stage?

If you would like to speed things up then you might like to consider this method of composting.
