Make a good compost
Now that the garden is full and the grass is mowed regularly, there is enough material for composting.
- Make sure you fill the compost bin with the same amount of nitrogen-rich material (grass clippings, fertilizers, shrubs) and carbon-rich material (flower stalks, shredded paper, woodcuts).
- Moisten your compost bin. The contents should stick together but not drain water when squeezing out a handful.
- If you want to compost quickly, the secret to success is to browse the contents of the trash once a week. When we tested this, we created a well-rotted compost in 10 weeks.
- When adding clippings to the pile, add a shovel of soil as well. This accelerated the composting process in our experiment.
