The only stuff I don't compost is bindweed and ground elder, everything else goes in ,even docks and weeds in seed.

I've done it this way for almost 40 years and have never had a problem. 

I one pulled a thermometer out of a compost bin and it was reading 120F

What exotic plants are you growing this year?

Posted: Yesterday at 19:54

Ryan, you can get those Bat plants in seed form. I'm sure they're pretty easily available.


Useful or useless mulch?

Watery, and all the better if it's free eh? 

I just called the guy who brings mine and asked what he does with the stuff he has no customer for. When he told me he has to pay to dump it , I offered him a " dump" .

He just turns up and drops it where we've agreed. Win win situation.
