I have been emptying a few of our compost bins recently, the compost is crumbly and smells earthy, a sure sign that it’s ready for use. The compost is rich in chicken manure, green waste and kitchen scraps. Tiger worms have certainly been doing their bit, our bins are literally wriggling with them. I shovelled the compost into a waiting wheelbarrow, then tipped it straight into some of the raised beds.
Now I’ve got some empty bins to fill with more magical compost-making ingredients.
