Yesterday I had designated as compost bin turning day. It’s not a job I look forward to – too much hard work – but the rewards are what motivates me to get out there and get on with the job.
The finished compost needed to be rehomed. So, the apple tree got a second mulch (the first lot seemed to have all but disappeared already) and there was enough left over to top up the year old tomato plant in my dining room. Hopefully, the extra nutrients will give it a boost and the flowers will become lovely fruit.
It seems hard to conceive that this product of mine actually holds nutrients in it. It just seems too incredible to be true. However, if the commercial stuff can act as a growing medium, my own must be at least as good, mustn’t it?
