Tabletop Composting Day 10

There is still little  difference between the two bins that are being aerated all the cabbage and beetroot leaves have been broken down and there is little shredded paper left but there are still recognisable slices of beetroot present. The temperatures in all three bins remain ambient at 250C as the sun had warmed the room. The material  in the lower part  of both chambers  is now quite wet and under normal circumstances more browns should be added but I am leaving the top of the chambers to see if that helps it dry.   The worms in chamber 3 are doing well.

The speed at which the aerated materials have broken down in such small bins has surprized me as there has not been any noticeable difference in temperatures.
