I thought @Tinytuttle started a "Show us your compst" thread but I'm a stoner, so I guess not.
Thus I respond to said non-request with a journey into my compst heap, a 3 week tour of funky shit, literally.
This pile was begun 3 days ago(forgot the camera ) and is a mixture of shredded live plum branches, semi-dry pecan leaves & nuts, sunflower stalks(dried & partial), 3 weeks worth of household/kitchen waste (including coffee grounds & filters, banana peels, paper towels, etc. but those are the main offenders), and a week's worth of dog shit. manyyyuuuuure, OK? It all got blended, saturated with the hosem & the dogdoo slurried in a bucket, tamped with a shovel(to reduce drying), then pierced to the center every 6-8" or so. I cover it with these scraps of polycarbonate clear plastic... because it was free scrap.
Then today (3 day intervals) I will hose it down, and move the outer 8" or so to the side of the pile, maintaining contact, and attempt to "invert" the whole mixture(from inside to out), water it again, add another week(maybe 4 lbs) of slurried dog shit, and re-pierce the thing (again) to the bottom-center(this is important). Then cover it over again & wait 3 days at which point I'll repeat the process...normally would not add manure at this point but the Carbon to Nitrogen ratio is very high in C because of the wood proportion/component...but probably will.
And I'll take pictures & post them with each rotation & write you another wonderfully lovely story about death & decay.
