We are building a magnificent composting structure. I thought we only needed three bins, but we had enough leftover lumber on the farm to build four, so why not? I am excited to get this thing done so we can finally put our kitchen compost somewhere--we have filled two containers already. Composting is a science--something about getting the right carbon to nitrogen ratio to make the best compost for growing vegetables. It is a little like making those colored sand pictures in a jar--lots of layering of grass, leaves, newspaper, kitchen waste, chicken manure and soil.
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
