Eat your Greens
Wednesday, 21 Dec 11 Cloudy 33°C / 91°F
I haven’t been out in the garden much. Between the bunged up thumb and Christmas shopping, it has kept me away for the past week. However, I went to turn the compost and it’s not doing so well.
The pieces through it where there were green is starting to rot. The biggest problem is that I had read you need anywhere from 2 browns to 1 greens all the way to 25:1. Because of this wide range of information, I went at about 10:1. I think the 2:1 was closer to right.
Also, I had been watering it irregularly. It’s now too dry for my liking. I’m thinking in Perth’s hot summer, I need to water it at least every second day. Oh well, you learn. So we’ll just up the watering but leave the mix the way it is to see how long it takes to decompose properly.
