Starting My Second Batch of Compost
After using all of the indoor compost to plant on my fire escape, I started a second batch.
This went much smoother and I expect it to continue that way. Here are some of the lessons that I learned from my first go around:
Don’t put too many greens in the compost
When putting in the newspaper make sure it’s not in chunks. Separate the pieces.
Don’t fill it up too much. It’ll make turning a chore
With that in mind, I set up my indoor kitchen compost.
Put down a layer of newspaper.
Topped it with some soil.
Covered it with a small layer of greens and dehydrated cow manure.
Topped it off with another layer of newspaper and soil
Keeping the fingers crossed that there will be no odor.
