I can't pick everything up.
Sometimes you just gotta drag it.
So much better than chocolate.
But I digress.
I am going to try hot composting - something I have never done before. I will be using the Your Farm in the City book by Lisa Taylor that I got and also a couple pages from Helen and Scott Nearings book The Good Life to build up the recipe. From what I can gather, I need to layer greens and browns with nitrogren fixing things, top soil and water. But learning from the Nearings, I'm going to put two poles straight down the middle to bring oxygen to the middle of the pile and speed things up. I'll be using my two compartment composting bin that I "created" (term used loosely - I'm no carpenter). I should be able to build, water and let it sit for 3 weeks, then take it apart and rebuild, moving the outside in, and let it sit for another 3 weeks and then rebuild again and then it should be good 3 weeks after that.
My previous method of composting was throw-it-in-the-corner-and-forget-about-it composting, which is nothing except Lindsey being lazy. Which is super fun and really easy, but I need to start generating more compost so it's time to get off my ass and make this a reality.
So I'm going to start now.
