I started another above ground compost pile today. Inspired by Yuki’s seed-saving blogpost, I decided to record the process.
At least at the end of the day, I cover with a layer of soil to discourage critters. When dry leaves are not available to alternate with the “green” waste, I use another layer of wet cardboard.
Keep the pile moist. For one thing, worms need moisture.
I plan to close this pile when it’s about 9 – 12″ high & let it decompose for a few months before planting directly into it. I’m hoping that the pile I just closed will be ready for potato planting by Jan / Feb.
