And then there were seven..

We are beginning to work out how to get the hotbins working to quickly compost our food waste. The trick seems to be to mix in plenty of dry wood-chip and not to open the bins more than twice a week. When mixed with wood-chip we have a wheel barrow load every day, so we needed another three bins. They aren’t quite getting up to full temperature yet (about 40 C) but they are smelling sweet and doing the job! Can’t wait for some proper compost to drop out of the bottom. The contraption on the right is Wim’s ‘Heath Robinson’ wood-chip drying contraption.
