EcoKnights and Shell’s “Garbage to Garden Composting Project” Compost Bin Batch #2. Day 11.

20th April 2017. This morning’s compostables: garden waste, kitchen waste & coffee grinds.


Starting point:

Of note on the composting material in the compost bin: this morning it seemed that the stuff had compacted a surprising level in the last 2 unattended days. From just below half bin height, the composting stuff had dropped to about 20% bin height. I was surprised by the high level of compaction.
