Finally, I am getting around to create a compost pile. It has been on my list ever since I bought a tractor in 2009. I have a tooth bar on my front end loader, and want to build a compost pile larger enough that I can use the front end loader to "flip" it every now and then.
So, to find a spot. Today I was moving some dirt to fill in a couple of spots. As I removed the dirt I noticed that I was building a hole in the bank of a ditch. I kept digging until I had an area in the bank about as big as the tractor.
Will this area work for composting? Or does the process need air on each side? Basically it is a cave without any dirt on top. Will it work?
