In a book, that I recently read, I learned very much about composting and how important it is to have a good compost for your garden. Until now we had just a big bucket for our compost and when it was full, we tipped it out on a small space, where it could rot more a little.
But of course, that’s not the best solution to grow a compost.
Now we have our compost 2.0:
I used an old pallet and turned it around, so that the compost is protected from big animals at the bottom. But there are of course still the gaps between the boards at the bottom, so that small animals like worms and insects can reach the compost.
On this pallet I fixed some wooden sticks and the rest of a chicken wire. I tried to have the ends of the wire at a front corner, so when it’s full and I have to open it, it’s easier.
I hope, it works good and I hope, the compost worms will find their way. I think, the biggest problem here in the Algarve is to keep it humid, so we will have to water it regularly. Let’s see how it works out 🙂
