the compost is benefiting from a huge amount of leaves, both raked up and dredged outta the pond (hard work that). it’s pleasing to have the whole system set up now, with the wheelbarrow and the different areas to dump stuff into.


above you can see first on the left an overflow leaf pile, then the huge pile for brambles, bamboo, other hard to break down stuff (when Z was visiting, she said leave it for a year or too and then move it, all the rottable stuff will be lovely soil underneath).. next to that a leaf and nettle bin, then the current compost bin (foodwaste, mixed green matter etc etc) and then on the right (out of picture but visible up above) the previous compost pile, rotting away nicely last time i turned it…

everything in the right place, as above, so below
