Spring Compost Bin Compaction - May 2021
The last time that I posted about our compost bins was back in October when I showed it about 3/4's of the way full with the season's leaves and a little bit of grass clippings. By the time the snow fell last Winter, I had stuffed the primary bin to the VERY TOP and filled the second one most of the way. Today, posting a view of the bins as they sit right now - having compacted over Winter. First, the primary bin - this one is back down to about 3/4's full. It has had a full Winter of snow pushing down on it. This bin also has passive aeration down at the bottom. It will need a turn in the next few weeks then I'll add some fuel to try to get it cooking this Summer.
