Ask me your burning composting questions!

It’s the Fall season, and it’s time to start gathering all the leaves you can- it’s your fuel to keep your compost pile going through the winter when it goes below freezing.

I’ve been doing this a long time, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m unaware of some common questions people may have about composting.

Is it simply getting started?  Unsure of what you can compost?  When to compost?  Where to compost?

Let me know what you’d like to learn more about, and I’ll try my best to help you out.

Bottomless pit composter?… or just a lot of grubs?

I thought i was overdue on starting my second trash can composter… the first one has had a bottomless pit for the last few months.

I was certain it would have been at capacity awhile ago, but then I took a closer look.

Not only were there a ton of red wigglers in there breaking it down, but also gobs and gobs of grubs- excellent!

They’ve been a huge help for sure- the pile has been steadily cooking along at a mellow 80 to 90 degrees since its inception, which wouldn’t be hot enough to break down the contents so swiftly.

Once the temperature drops a bit more, I’m going to try transferring as many of the worms over to the big pile as I can…hoping that it’s thick enough to insulate them through the winter- we’ll see!
