My compost bin has got a hatch on it. I’d always thought the designers of such had been wishful thinking: compost neatly sitting just behind the flap to be taken out as and when needed. Then I opened the hatch and some beautiful homemade compost was there, just begging to be out.
Curiosity satisfied, I thought the least I could do was oblige. So, the potato bin has been topped up and the rest I’ve used as mulch around some strawberry plants. These were put in last autumn without any kind of food, so it was time to be kind to them.
Anyway, I doubt I could get the compost from the back and sides out of the bin without a lot of mess – the heap will need turning for that – but it was fun, taking out the little bit I did. And I am impressed with the bin as a whole. Especially after putting some bokashi mix in the other day, it was been quite toasty in there. And reduced in size by a third 😊.
