Horse manure (in bins and under tarp) and straw bales – a winter worm composter’s best friends…apart from the worms, that is!
Just a quick update for all y’all. Earlier in the week my farmer friend dropped off 2 cubic yards of partially aged horse manure and 12 bales of straw. Today I’ll be transporting as much as I can over to my dad’s place, where we will first attempt to warm up the material (in bins, in his basement), then add the vast majority of it to the worm bed, layered with and then covered with straw.
Not sure if I’ll have the chance to wrote more this week unfortunately, but you can expect to see an update soon!
