Being it was sunny today I got out in the yard for some chores before freeze comes around peremanently. Well I finally got around to my compost pile etc today (Saturday). I pulled it all free of my bin. I've spread some out into 2 of my garden beds so far. Next I need to turn it into the soil. That'll wait till spring though. Anyhow it turned out great looking etc. It is like dirt and perfect according to sites I saved about compost. I did add some leaves to it a few days ago and they're still visible though. Did you, or do you compost? Do you use a tiller to turn it into your soil? I'll be turning mine by hand.

y brother used to do that but he has a tool which i am not sure what he calls it. Now, he can't do that anymore because he is so busy with his new job. That would be so taxing on your part doing it by hand but doing compost is good and we are helping our environment in a way. Happy composting!

What?? No poo either? I heard it makes for great fertilizer. hahaha It is a very pretty day here, sun shinning so bright but a little windy. I don't have mulching to do or soil to till or do by hand but I did go out and sit in the sun and looked at a magazine that come in the mail today.

Congratulations on getting a great looking compost. It's harder than it appears to get everything rotted down and the right texture! I have a number of composts going at the same time. There's one down on the veg field which is all the garden waste. When it comes to the time to turn that field over I'll just drag it through and turn it in. We use a small rotovator if we're doing small patches, or hire a local guy with a large one or a tractor in if we're doing the lot. I also keep a couple of worm bins where all the household waste goes, and that makes wonderful compost for smaller areas. The worms break it down really fast.
