Not compost again!

I think I’m spending too much time in the garden. Where some people like to show you photos of their kids I can show you photos of my recently dismantled leaf litter compost pile …


The joy of this compost is just stick the leaves in the bin and ignore them for two years (the dark brown layer on the bottom). For once slaters are welcome as they do their thing breaking down rotting cellulose (and not my new seedlings for a change!).

As the blessed Saint Peter Cundall says “Good enough to eat!’


Not to mention my recently cleared and sown green manure bed being readied for this coming summer’s tomatoes …


along with some random garlic seedlings I found while I was digging out the weeds.

and the seed that went into it!


Tragic really!
