Cheap trick

Go out and find/buy an old or second hand hammer and use it to break up tough and woody stems of plants so they will break down more easily in your compost bin. This really good for tough brassica stems.

Smashing the stems of our frost destroyed basil … with the added bonus of basil aroma while I worked.

Tip # 1: smash the stems while they are still fresh, it will be easier.

Tip # 2:don’t ruin your special relationship by using the ‘good’ hammer for this job!
