I'm Still Composting!!

...even though our ground has been pretty frozen. Not sure if this is the right thing to do or not, but I've been placing the compost on top of the frozen heap, and then covering that with whatever I can find (leaves, twigs, etc.)

How about you - do you (and if so how) compost during the cold of winter?

Hey, you're back!

Yes, we have 3 large plastic composting bins in our (small) garden, and we continue to fill them through the winter.

We make sure that the one nearest the path has plenty of space for this time of year!

LOL yup, I'm back (kinda ;) Thanks for checking in! My kids are running me ragged these days, but hopefully in the new year I'll be able to make time to post more often. Happy holidays :)

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

Damon - thanks! I checked out the forum link - some good ideas there. I'm lucky now, actually, that it's warmed up quite a bit lately (it's about 8C now), so the ground is very diggable again :)

There are certain products that allow you to compost during colder times without having to put things in the ground.

i would love to try growing potatoes sometimes. mostly i stick to tomatoes, basil, lettuce, and spinach. my garden is a bit tiny. but potatoes making their homes happily in the earth just sounds like something i should be in on in this life.
