As I was looking out the kitchen window for the first time this morning, I noticed my compost bin.
The fact that the frost stops where the compost starts suggests to me that there is some heat in there. It is a cold composting system as I don’t have the space, let alone the matter, for a hot one. At the same time, I had wondered what the compost bin might be doing at this time of year. So, it looks like there is something going on in there to keep it above freezing!
I do hope so, although I am surprised as the bin is mostly carbon materials at the moment (eg brown paper bags). I don’t know about you but in winter I generate far less green waste. Not only is the garden itself largely unforthcoming, but as I don’t peel most vegetables there really isn’t a lot from the kitchen either.
