Embracing Our Interdependence With Nature
Here are some pictures to go along with the article Everything Manure: Making Your Own Manure Compost
Great pics my classmate. I wish I had the space you have so I can experiment a little more. Question: How often do you put hay on a compost pile? Is this a one time deal?
Request: I need some cuttings from a mango tree. I have some root stock but need some scion’s from a mature and fruiting tree.
Thanks for all you do.
Thanks for your comment Gary. I have a complicated answer for your simple question. If you are asking about the
straw on top of the manure compost pile that is a one time application. I put it on heavy to cover up the manure, water it and forget about it. Although it changes it doesn’t break down quickly the way hay or leaves or newspaper shreds would.
In my mixed manure piles I layer on hay that comes out of the rabbit hutch as a component of the carbonaceous wastes that I expect to break down.
You are welcome to some cuttings from my mango tree. It is a grafted variety, it is rather cold hardy and has a delicious medium sized mango though I have forgotten the name of the variety. Please call me to arrange a visit.
Thanks for your comments Sara and Dorothy.
