Mum came round last night to empty her compost caddy into our bin and because I’ve been away for a few days I’ve not been adding to it or monitoring it’s progress. To be fair it has looked like the same pile of potato peelings, banana skins, ripped tea bags, grass cuttings and balls of newspaper for a few weeks now. You can imagine how shocked I was to find this!
As you can see in the pic I’ve thrown in a few extra scrumpled pieces of newspaper. But overall I think I’m quite pleased with the way it’s all breaking down. The smell is lovely and sweet. Hard to explain, considering it’s rotting!
I just hope we get some half decent compost at the end.
I forgot to post a pic up yesterday of my herb pot, so I’ve just nipped out into the Garden Space and gone a little snap happy.
