Kitchen and Garden waste turns into home made compost.
This week I have been digging out
compost from the compost bin, after turning the not ready compost over and adding it to the other compost bin. This gives me a supply of compost to top up the raised beds and also an almost empty compost bin to start throwing the waste into to create more compost for the vegetable plot.
Hopefully the second of our compost holding bins will turn itself into compost in time for adding to the plot this autumn. It never ceases to surprise me how much kitchen and garden waste goes in to turn into a much smaller amount of compost. I know compost rots down but the amount it takes to produce a wheel barrow full is amazing. Why more councils do not organise collection of items that could be composted and turn it into this useful product I will never understand. The efficiency of composting when done on a larger scale would speed up the process so they could turn the potential kitchen and garden waste into compost in weeks. Better still would be if they could organise a Bokashi system for those who have lots of kitchen waste that cannot be composted in the ordinary way.
