Composting Bin Update

So, it’s been about 3.5 weeks since I actually started my compost pile. Yes, I still have it and I actually did not throw it out lol.

In the meantime, it’s been building up. It’s about halfway full and got all kinds of veggie and fruity bits including tomatoes, kale, carrots, banana peels, and onion skins as well as a little helping of fresh coffee grounds cause….I don’t… drink…. coffee…. 😐.

Yes I bought a dollar bag of coffee grounds specifically for the compost pile…

I’m learning ok!?

That’s really it, and I’m wondering if I should be adding anything more specific. But for the time being, I’m just going to do what I’m doing. Seems to be working out.

Every now and again, I’ll go in and mist it with a light layer of water and shake it around real good. I guess this time I shook it so well it caused a crack in the bottom of the bucket, so I just put it into another bucket and it leaks in there.

I add to it continually, and I’m always cutting everything up into chunks (should I be doing that?) And I prop it right next to Samakh by the window to catch whatever sunlight it can.

I’m pretty sure I’m doing the poor man’s version of Hot Composting, without all the fancy materials, the space… or even the outdoors. 😅

We’ll have to see how this works out with my poor man’s garden lol. Stay tuned!

Love you. Mean it!
