Wednesday Gardening – Compost

We’ve been doing a bit of composting around the place and here is a wagon full of good soil I dumped out of our rotary composter:

Fully baked compost.

We have two of these:

The new rotary composter

It takes 4 to 6 weeks to get a wagon full from one of these.  We use kitchen scraps and some yard trimmings that I shred.  This compost has been great in the veggie garden.

I wish we had more room for compost piles, but for now this is working well.

  1. That’s lovely! A composter is still on my wish list. Such a long list… so little budget… 😉

    I wanted one of those in Phoenix! Yours seems to work pretty well. I just have a big pile hidden in the backyard.

    That looks great compost and amazing how quickly it decomposed. My regular pile that I physically turn approx every 10-14 days can take 2-3 months. Longer in the winter. But I love the stuff
