Composting tips

August 4, 2008


A compost pile that has stalled can be restarted by forking out all the old material and mixing it thoroughly with grass clippings, leafy yard waste and blood meal before returning it to the pile. This will add the nitrogen sources needed to spur microbial decay. The pile should be thoroughly watered and then kept moist in the hot weeks of summer, and turned occasionally.

Igby you forgot the end of your sentence. That would be "if you want to kill everything that you fertilize with your compost." Great way to start your own salt the earth campaign though.

Toss in a box or two of table salt.
