It’s that time again to empty out the simple cinder block compost bin that we dumped most of our green/yard and animal bedding waste in. It stands 5 bricks high and 5 wide. We use the lazy method of composting – dump, leave & empty. Yeah, we aren’t too big on the intricacies of composting – we figure let nature do it and, literally, compost just happens.
New black gold for the spring planting season not to mention some tasty morsels for the chickens and ducks.
Digging out the pile
Almost to the bottom – look at all that dark soil!
Yum, yum (well if you are a chicken or duck, that is)
Not only was it dig out the compost pile day, but also it was lots of work in the garden with spring clean up time–tidying up here and there before the anticipated summer overgrowth.
Spring cleaning has begun!
What about you? Does the longer days warmer weather get you in the tidying mood?
