Fast Composting Process

Fast Composting Process

You can see this fast composting process if you compare this picture on the right to the one below on the left.   This picture on the right is from July 19, about six weeks after I started.  See my last post on Wire Bin Compost Bin Works Great for all the details about how I started at the end of May.Wire Compost Bin Small Pic  This will be a series of a few posts on this fast composting process.  Of course, it wouldn’t happen this fast in the winter when it is cold.

Very Exciting to See Composting Process

This is very exciting to see how the composting is working.  Compare the smaller picture on the left to the one above.  The wire compost bin. is overflowing on the left.  It is packed with garden debris and leaves.  And then, a mere 6 weeks later it has composted down to half its original size.  Amazing!  How all the microorganisms are processing this organic matter so that it reduces so much in size in just 6 weeks.  This is very satisfying to know that the compost is working and it is happening before our very eyes!!  This is what it means by saying: “Compost Happens!”
