Composting fun!

14Dec11

Well tomorrow I’m really “digging” into the garden with both hands. I’ve decided I’m going to replant an artichoke plant I have, get my tire planters set up, and clear out space for and start my compost pile. This I am VERY excited about, partly for the wonderful addition to my soil and partly because it will cut down on my family’s waste output. Also I’ve found a way around that long, back breaking, chore: turning the compost pile. Instead of turning I am going to use a perforated length (about four feet) of PVC pipe stuck into the middle of the pile to aerate. I also plan on adding some worms to speed the process along. Eventually I plan on having two piles, one that will be breaking down while we build up the other so we always have compost on hand! Will post some pictures very soon.
