There is nothng quite so sweet as the smell of the perfect compost heap. Rich, crumbly and perfect for spreading around the garden. A compost heap on the turn though is a nose wrinkling affair. It's been a few weeks (lalalalalalalalala, think months actually) since I last looked into bin #1 and whilst it looked dark and mellow on top, the underneath had a decided stinky acidic smell too it (and wee jumping maggotty things as well!)
Right, it was on with the gloves and out with the shovel. Moved the soil from the end of one of my 3 meter earth rings and bunged the bin there. Moved the compost shovel by shovel load into the bins new position and layered with some of the earth from the earth ring and shredded newspaper. Hopefully this will help to rescue it and the heat as it does it's thing will be good for the seeds I going to plant in the bed; broadbeans.
Can you think of anything else I need to add to the compost bin before I close the lid on it?
Oh and bin #2 is choc a block full of black soldier fly maggots! Anyone need any maggots for fishing?
