Shredded bark, left in a pile will eventually breakdown and become great compost. The potting soil that I use is about 80% rotted bark. I make potting soil by purchasing fine textured, and dark hardwood bark mulch, and I just put it in a pile and let it rot. The secret is to keeprepparttar pile low and flat, so that it does not shedrepparttar 116297 rain water away, you want repparttar 116298 mulch to stay as wet as possible, this will cause it to breakdown fairly quick.

So I keep a pile of rotted bark mulch near my compost bins. When both bins are completely full, I emptyrepparttar 116299 bin containingrepparttar 116300 oldest material by piling it on top of my rotted bark mulch. I make surerepparttar 116301 pile of rotted mulch is wide and flat on top so that when I putrepparttar 116302 material fromrepparttar 116303 compost bin on top ofrepparttar 116304 pile,repparttar 116305 compost material is only 5 to 10 inches thick. My mulch pile might be 12’ wide, but it may only be 24 to 30 inches high. Once I have allrepparttar 116306 compost on top of repparttar 116307 pile, then I go aroundrepparttar 116308 edge ofrepparttar 116309 pile with a shovel, and take some ofrepparttar 116310 material fromrepparttar 116311 edges ofrepparttar 116312 pile and toss it up on top ofrepparttar 116313 pile, coveringrepparttar 116314 compost with at least 6” of rotted bark. This will causerepparttar 116315 compost material to decomposerepparttar 116316 rest ofrepparttar 116317 way.

Once you get this system started, you never want to use all ofrepparttar 116318 material inrepparttar 116319 pile. Always keep at least 2 to 3 cubic yards on hand so you’ve got something to mix with your compost. If you use a lot of compost material like I do, then you should buy more material and add to your pile inrepparttar 116320 late summer or fall, once you are done using it forrepparttar 116321 season. Around here many ofrepparttar 116322 supply companies sell a compost material that is already broken down quite well. This is what I buy to add to my stock pile. But I try to make sure that I have at least 3 yards of old material on hand, then I’ll add another 3 yards of fresh material to that. Then inrepparttar 116323 spring I’ll empty one ofrepparttar 116324 compost bins and addrepparttar 116325 compost torepparttar 116326 top ofrepparttar 116327 pile.

The pile of usable compost will be layers of material, some more composted than others. Kind of like a sandwich. So what I do is chip off a section ofrepparttar 116328 pile fromrepparttar 116329 edge, spread it out onrepparttar 116330 ground so it’s only about 8” deep, then run over it with my small rototiller. This mixes it together perfectly, and I shovel it ontorepparttar 116331 potting bench.

Having a pile of rotted compost near your compost bins is great because if you have a lot of leaves or grass clippings, you can throw some rotted compost inrepparttar 116332 bin in order to maintain that layered effect that is necessary in order forrepparttar 116333 composting process to work well.

Sure this process is a little work, but it sure is nice to have a place to get rid of organic waste anytime I like. Then downrepparttar 116334 road when I have beautiful compost to add to my potting soil, I am grateful to have donerepparttar 116335 right thing earlier, and I know that I have wasted nothing.

Install a rural style mailbox on a post near your garden. You can paint flowers on it for a great-looking waterproof nook to keep small hand tools, garden gloves, kneeling pads or even a notebook for writing down garden records. This is one way to make sure you don't put off writing down planting times, fertilizing schedules, etc.



Many ofrepparttar 116338 "weeds" you try so hard to get rid of can actually be eaten and contain two or three timesrepparttar 116339 nutritional value than spinach or swisschard. Use young leaves from dandelion, chicory, lamb's quarters, shepard's purse or watercress for a wild greens salad. Serve with a vinegar and oil dressing. You can also steam or sauté any of these "weeds." Sauté in olive oil and garlic and/or drizzle with lemon juice.
