7th May 2017.
Early morning: Waste paper in the bucket to start (was cutting up some paper the night before..)
Composting material: wheatgrass mats and some kitchen waste…
Added kitchen waste:
Arranged the mats as I could: interesting how long the roots of the wheatgrass plant grew.
Soaked waste paper added.
Mid-morning: second addition… . Material: garden waste, kitchen waste and crushed dry leaves in the white plastic bag.
Added the greens:
Then the browns…
Early afternoon: third addition… . Kitchen waste as well as funny smelling edible dry fungus.
Added the wet stuff first…
Then the dry fungus…
And a wet down…
Evening: Fourth addition… . Kitchen and garden wastes.
It was late and getting darker by the moment, decided to skip the browns… 🙂
Currently the compost bin is barely even half full. The shrinkage and compaction is much higher than I thought.
24th February 2017. Early morning breakkie at good old New Grand View coffeeshop. Across the road is the park that provides me with most of the dry leaves I use in my composting.
If you look to the right of the photo, near the white car, you can just about make out blue bags of dry leaves.
Here is a zoomed in photo of the bags of dry leaves. Loads of bags for the taking…
Unfortunately today I didn’t drive myself so I had to forgo getting my usual 2 baggies.
