Pumpkin Smash and Composting

Pumpkin Smash and composting. The pallet bins to which some of the smashed pumpkins were added 4 days ago have been  turned. They where quite wet as the lumps of pumpkin started decomposing. Some smell. Turning the bin into the next in line helps to break up the lumps and the addition of wood chip acted as a bulking agent. Shredded paper also added to reduce the numbers of white fly. The photo shows most of the material before being  transfered from one bin to the next. More information on the www.carryoncomposting.com pumpkin smash page
