Hello! I've decided to post my compost pile here so....here goes! My first thread!
Fall and winter is when I work on my outdoor compost pile. The growing season is almost over now and it's time to focus on making compost!
So, I started my outdoor pile today! It didn't take very long and I've got pics below of each step
So, what you see is:
-I started the base of my pile with some yard waste, some bagged compost and some unfinished compost from my last pile
-Then I added a 50 lb bag of beets and molasses from the feed store
-After that, about 50 lbs of coffee grounds from Starbucks
-Next I added some green sand, lava sand and gypsum. You can see it's green red and white
-Next is a 50 lb bag of alfalfa pellets from the feed store
-Followed by 4 pumpkins that are cut into pieces
-and then a full bag of compost starter
While I was layering this pile, I would occasionally add some base material and stir the pile some
-then I covered it all up
And Finally, I flattened the top of the pile and put the hose on low so it gets wet
This pile will sit for a month. We get rain here in N. Texas this time of yr so the pile will get wet....... and then I will turn it and add more materials. At that time I will update this thread with more pics!
Here's all the pics!
Thanks for looking!!!
