This is National Compost Awareness Week and I’m planting potatoes today, so, decided to break into one of the four compost heaps I started last year.
This compost is still quite bulky, but is perfect for potato planting and covering. It’s packed with goodness!
The method I use for composting is a simple one called Cold Composting…that means just stacking it and topping it up, no turning and eventually thatching it.
This protects it from the worst of the elements!
This is planting potatoes the permaculture way…
First I lay cardboard on the ground.
Spread compost on the top, followed by the spuds, then more compost!
