The Composting season:end of February
February continued processing material from the allotments. Last year's flower stalks which are now dry, brown stems, leeks and weeds, with quite a lot of soil on their roots where the main items this week. Traditionally a layer of soil was often included when layering a bin so the weed and soil would count as a soil layer to introduce local microbes to the bin or at least that is my excuse. Cardboard was used as today's layer of browns. A cow manure layer was added to give a boost to the layers of flower stalks. This bin should be filled next week.
