Compost Update

For  the past few weeks the weekend weather here in the west has been wonderful. There have been many hours spent out in the yard weeding and raking and generally getting things in order for Spring.

I have three compost bins on the go at the moment at varying stages of decomposition. The one that has been sitting the longest is ready to get taken out and added to a garden bed. At the moment we have six beds in the front yard with another waiting to be put together in the upcoming school holidays. This is where the compost will go when I get this next no-dig garden put together. (A post about this bed will follow in a few weeks.)

I get such a buzz each time I open the lid of the bin knowing that all of the food, garden and paper scraps we gathered are being put to great use and being dealt with on-site. There was no need to send any of this off in rubbish trucks to be recycled, or worse, turned into landfill. All of this wonderful compost will go towards growing our beautiful summer vegetables.

If you don't compost due to fear of the unknown, have a bit of read through the information at the top of the page and feel free as ask as many questions as you want. It is so worthwhile.

If you do compost, how is yours coming along?

Take care


  1. Inspired! Love the composting tab. I will get my composting back on track again and no doubt be asking LOTS of questions. x

  2. Ask away! It feels so worthwhile. I can't believe it took me so long to get started. We have been doing it for about 4 years now and I love the feeling of wheeling the almost empty rubbish bin to the curb every week.
    It looks like the break was fab.


Thanks so much for dropping by. I really appreciate any comments you have to make.
