Compost Year May

The Composting year. A weekly dip into our allotment community compost reception bin. The stalks are continuing tobe added, These will be chopped into about 2 inch lengths and crushed by hitting with a hammer. This exposes a greater surface are for the composting bugs to work on.

When visiting allotments I find large numbers bins with complete brassica stalks  relatively  unaffected by the composting process occuring in the materials round them. Do you chop and crush?

We have also had a lot of this small plants. Anyone know what they are?
