Garden is in!

Post  herblover on 4/3/2010, 3:01 pm

This morning was spent in the SFG as well as fertilizing my trees. I dumped my compost from its trash can home onto a tarp, took all the finished compost and mixed it into my garden. I was able to add compost to my entire 4x4 box. Planted spinach, radishes, kohlrabi, kale, and Swiss chard. I am so excited to be getting started!

Compost from your garbage can.

Post  Amy in Idaho on 4/3/2010, 11:51 pm

You mention dumping your compost from your garbage can. Did you compost it in there? How did that go for you? How long did it take? Just wondered because I am trying hot composting using three aluminum garbage cans. I am rotating them every day, keep one empty, rotate through. Any advice on this would be great. Thanks!

Hi Amy,
I use a black vinyl can with holes cut into it for air circulation. I started last spring when I began my garden. I keep an old cat litter container (nice heavy plastic with a sturdy lid and handle) in my garage and dump all my household compostables into it. When it is full I dump it in my trash can, add a layer of shredded newspaper and mix and wet it. If I think of it I will turn it and wet it in between, but I don't usually, and once I have a certain amount it is too heavy for me. But I had enough finished compost to dig into my garden this year, and about 1/3 of a can of partially finished to start with for the year. I am only using it in my SFG and only have one 4x4 box, so that is sufficient for me and workable as well.

Herb - I'm doing the same thing! My first yr....I used an old garbage can, drilled holes all over, and I rotate it once or twice a week by rolling it around.
I also use a big, sturdy cat litter pail for my compost! great minds think alike.
