Re: What to do with sailing books
Comparisons of a composting head and a garden compost pile are difficult. I have a garden compost pile and it takes months to really break down the various food/garden items.The head compost is much, much more conducive to breaking down, especially when aerated regularly. I was doubtful at first but quite surprised at the rapidity of the process.
The largest problem I see is in making sure no #1 gets mixed in with the composting material. This, of course, is more difficult for the "opposite" sex:-). If it happens, it means an immediate 100% cleanout. The smell from waste comes from the mix of #1 and #2. The #2 and coconut coir (or peat) create virtually no obnoxious odor. I have found that I don't even need the little fan I built in.
Anyway, thread drift has occurred and if mods want to start yet another composting head thread......
