Monty Don would be pleased




 Compost. I have been adding kitchen and garden waist, soil from old plant pots, the odd clump of allotment soil and some manure from the annual allotment pile (apparently it comes from the police horses) that arrives to the site. Going by Monty Don's method, you turn it by rotating the stuff from one compost bin to another. This gives it a good airing which breaks up the components. Yes, not quite Breaking Bad but there is a good bit if science breaking down all that organic matter. I only have 2 compost bins and I've aerated and scooped it all into 1 for a slow-cook over the winter period.
