~What Is Composting~
Today we talk about composting.
How To Make A Compost Bin.
The first step in making a compost bin is to have your materials, you need multiple browns ( Leaves, Egg shells, Dead plants, wood chips, and hay.) and greens, (fruit peelings, vegetable peelings, weeds, coffee grounds, and grass clippings). Next you need some decomposers, they can be worms, fungi, or bacteria, I suggest worms.Now add water, water is important because it mixes the compost and helps it break down. Then throw it all into the compost bin, and let the worms and time do their magic, soon in a couple of weeks you will have nice healthy compost, be sure to throw in some other stuff as well, but meat, bones, and dairy are forbidden. Also, remember that the temperature in the compost bin will soon be 140 degrees F, you should feel some radiation from the bin in a couple of weeks, this is a good thing don't worry.
This is a snapshot of a compost bin and the worms going to work, decomposing the food, and releasing minerals into the compost.
The decomposers break down and release minerals into the compost to make nice and healthy compost for farming and gardening.
Ingredients For Compost
Fruits/ vegetables are a main part of decomposing, without something to break down and give off minerals to the soil and, something for the decomposers to break down, we couldn't decompose.
Effects of composting
Potatoes do not mold and decay since they are considered seeds/roots.
Manur is extra minerals for the compost, but don't put in pet droppings, it will attract flies.
