The compost heap from Hell

Compost heap horrorLooks like a shanty town, huh? Welcome to “Slumdog Allotmenteer”.

I’m not proud of myself. A compost heap should look a bit ragged around the edges… but this is beyond unhygienic. The bags are full of chicken shit from my mother’s farm, and the pong is really minging. Makes your eyes water.

The rest is… well, junk. Let’s call a spade a spade: I’m a filthy bugger, and I need a clean up.

Mental note: Tidy up plot soonest.

    Messy or not you must be doing something right as that dark soil of yours is quite impressive.

    Soilman, even I am surprised at the mucky depths this compost heap has been allowed to get to! Sort it out….!

    Saves on a trip to the gym.

    I bet there’s a few rodent nests under there too.

  5. Soilman Says:

    Yeah, I’ve been worried about that Jo. Dread to think what’s going to come out when I stir it up a bit…

    Chicken shit – gold dust. But say, weren’t you going to sow us your shed, or did it blow away?

  8. altadenahiker Says:

    Yeah, the sink will take awhile to decompose. And the car mats.

    A compost heap with verything including the kitchen sink – impressive. My shed looks a bit like this… broken remnants of this and that, rubble that we dug up (we didn’t put it there)… wood, plastic bits… Funnily enough, I’m going to attack it all this weekend. Good luck with yours.

    That’s OK by me Soilman! I am easily impressed by a man carrying a bagful of manure. Happy Valentines!
