    The “weedy flowers” have always been some of my favorites.

    I am involved in the master composting program in Spokane. You might want to put up a third bin space. Spent coffee grounds work well to heat up your compost bin. I don’t think you had worm tea there, just dead worm juice. Worms are comfortable in temperatures you are comfortable. Well managed worm bins shouldn’t stink. Try the book ‘ Worms eat my garbage ‘ by Applebaum. If you are in Spokane around Arbor Day we have a compost fare at the arboretum.

    you're a very special person to be excited about community service, not in a negative way but most people actually avoid community service unless it's to pay fines

    I know advice/tips/suggestions can be a little bit of a sore subject. I grew up in the city too. It took me a while to learn how much easier it is to use a pitchfork instead of a shovel when moving mulch, or compost or woodchips around. It is a lot easier to force the forks into the material. The shovel doesn't want to penetrate, but the forks penetrate quite easily.

    Might add a pitch fork to your tools/  Makes it a lot easier to break up and move compost.

    I'm in Virginia and my worms freeze too! I know from experience just how cold Idaho winters can get. Just built an insulated worm bin to help keep the wigglers alive. I used to keep my worms under a mobil home as protection from the weather, now I keep some in the basement dugout.. I agree there is a lot of worthless gardening nonsense on youtube, but there is also some good info too

    Sweetie you need a pitchfork! Lol it makes me tired to see you use that shovel. On a positive note, you get your workout.

    I agree with the comment about making a compost pile rather than bin. Keep the bin though, you could use it to store wood chips for wood stove fuel similar to wood pellets but lower energy. You. Would be better off terracing your garden into the hill. You can use your boulders to hold up the earth walls and this would give you a ready framework to build a greenhouse setup to extend your growing period and protect your plants from wild animal grazing

    Pitchfork! The BEST way for turning your compost!

  • Philip Montgomery 8 months ago

    Looks like you need a good pitch fork (4 or 5 prong) and a good digging fork for your compost pile and garden.

    If you're going to blend by hand get a pitch fork. They help a lot with breaking down large clumps and increases aeration at the same time.

    You might find a spading fork helpful when breaking up compost.

    Sprinkle some urea over the fresh dry leaves when you are spreading for compost it will help in composting soon.
