I guess that’s to be expected… compostable bags don’t have the shelf life that standard plastic does.
Anyway, I didn’t have much use for them now so I decided to throw one in my compost bin.
Next weekend, I will be halting my additions to the compost pile for one year, while I start bin number 2. For those of you not aware, I have been following the Joe Jenkins method of humanure composting over the last year.
Since I started this composting method, my piles have gotten much hotter than ever before. 140 to 150 degrees is no problem to achieve; and sustaining this temperature range just might be the ticket to breaking down compostable plastic.
