Ok Friends, I need your help. I was planting seeds yesterday, and in the process discovered the compost I thought I had so carefully mixed into the soil had not broken down much at all. All there was were big, dry clumps of partially digested grass and hay, not the rich black crumbles I was looking for.
Right now, I have a compost bin where I layer used chicken hay, lawn clippings, and kitchen scraps. I toss it in willy-nilly, and spray it with a hose when I'm around. It isn't very scientific, and that's probably why I have such poor results.
I'd like to level up in the compost department. Does anyone have any composting success stories to share? The least labor intensive method will be the best for me, as the weakest link in my composting game has always been heavy lifting. I am curious to hear and eager to adopt strategies from real folks who've figured a good system out.
I look forward to hearing from you! If there is a suggestion that I think I can pull off, we'll put it into action and document the project. Thanks in advance, and I look forward to seeing what happens!
