Black Gold

I am so fortunate to have bought a house where composting has been in full swing for some time. The old bin is ready to spread, the new bin was basically a pile of leaves and twigs, so I am working on converting that one into something useable.

Today was the first day I actually pulled from the compost to cover/mix in with the soil. It was super easy. I scooped the pile onto a screen that is over a wheelbarrow. I shook the screen around so the loose stuff falls into the bin, which is what goes into the soil in the garden beds, and the course stuff that stays on top can be put into another bin and used as mulch ontop of soil or fruit trees or placed back into the bin for further composting.
