Hot Composting

Wednesday, 30 Nov 11 Sunny 32°C / 90°F

I’m toying with the idea of setting up a hot composting pile or two. The idea was spawn after watching Tino on Gardening Australia. The whole concept just looked fantastic! Now I’m wondering how to really go about it. Do I go out and by straw? Or do I use gum leaves (which I have in abundance)? What makes good green matter? Tino used nasturtium… I’ll have to think more about that. Maybe grass clippings? I’m just betting that straw and some large-leaf green will give the best combination. Time to experiment!
