I live on a large size farm.
I have a large amount of pigmy goat dung mixed with hay, cow dung, hay with a little bit of rabbit dung in it, some rotten round bails of hay, and a huge brush pile. I have a good amount of garden waist but there is still more to come.
I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know much about compost but I know you need greens and browns. I have done a few searches and I find lots of info but I need some help to get started.
I was planning on starting in layers and was thinking of a row about 6Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ wide and 5Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ high and 100Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ long. For mixing I would just use my front end loader. I plan on getting a big thermometer so I can keep up with the temp. The brush is mixed woods and I was planning on chipping it.
How thick and what order should I put this stuff down?
I have seen some compost activator but is it worth it?
If I need more greens IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get some blood meal or cotton seed meal.
If it is ready IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m planning on tilling it all in to our garden.
What book should I buy?
