Keep compost pile moist

0
270

This is the time of year when there are lots of materials available to
compost. Remember that the compost needs to be kept moist so that the
bacteria and fungi can break down the raw materials. Use a sprinkler to soak
through the pile to the center. Allow the pile to drain. The goal is for the
pile to remain moist; not waterlogged. Edges will dry out the quickest and
may need a light sprinkling from time to time.
If you are interested in composting but don’t know how it is done, see our
