I am new to composting. I was tired of throwing out all the vegetable and fruit peelings so I decided to start a compost pile. I started this pile mid June with grass clippings and various stuff from the kitchen. I threw in a Bobcat loader of horse manure. I mix up the pile every so often. It needs to be mixed up again and have a layer of grass clippings put on top so some of this stuff starts decomposing better. I am surprised that it does not smell bad at all.
The chickens love all the kitchen leftovers too….so I have to split up the goodies between the chickens and compost pile. I did read that chicken manure is a great addition to a compost pile.
It looks like a wandering cow found her way to the garden and compost pile last night. There was evidence in front of the pile…..with a pile of her “stuff”. I just scooped it up and threw it in the compost!!These little prints are too small for a cow. So I guess her calf was along too!
