Compost bin

Posted: 06/12/2013 at 13:58

I put twiggy bits that havn't rotted well the first time round in the bottom. It all get mixed up anyway, but I believe the received wisdom is twiggy stuff in the bottom. Is that on a soil base so that the worms can get in, or are you going to add a starter of some brandlings and a bit of finished compost?

Time for bed. I hope everyone is safe and dry. The east coast looks to be in a bad way.

Well, I finally got the curtains dry. Only needed 10 pegs to keep each one on the line. I have rehung them, I'm leaving the other two mucky until the weather improves.

 OH has decided the ceilings need another coat. Not this week, I've had enough.  I've done the shopping today, I'm stopping in now for the weekend. Like Nut, I'll check for damage tomorrow.
