Double your Compost
(Adelaide, South Australia)
Compost can take a while to break down and be ready to use in your garden.
Solution! Have two compost bins or heaps
. This is what I do.
Once bin 1 is full, leave it to do its thing and start adding to your bin number 2. When your bin 1 is ready to use - do a final top up of bin number 2 and leave it. It doesn't need to be full.
Then spread your compost from bin 1 around your garden for mulch
or in your veggie patch and then you can start adding to bin number 1 again.
With only one bin, it is tempting to continually add to it but then it never seems ready to use.
By using two bins I always seem to have some compost
ready to use.
