What was used to turn the compost

Weekend of September 18-19:

added to compost: bananas, egg shells, lettuce, and found a bag of coffee grounds mixed in.

Weekend of September 25-26:
Compost watering and turning was missed this week.

 

Weekend of October 2-3:

Dry compost, with some plants starting to grow from it!

 

 

I realized i had to water it a lot more, why not both turn and water the compost at once?

 

 

Added grapes, more egg shells, more lettuce and cabbage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weekend of October 9-10:

Turned and watered!

I didnt have anything to bring, but found a lot of these dry leaves added to the compost

    thanks, Andrew–that’s great. This will wean us off the fertilizer too…that stuff is expensive! Do you need people to bring stuff in?

      Florence mentioned that our compost is different because we keep adding stuff every week, which keeps lengthening the process. At this point I think we can just let the latest stuff decompose and begin using it as fertilizer. When is the next time we should fertilize the plants?
