I started…

to empty out the compost bin yesterday, which was a job I had intended doing back in the spring but it was too wet.  I’m taking it steady, and it should take a couple of more days or so.  I’m completely emptying it as I want to make a few minor adjustments to the pallets which make up the sides.  I swapped these for the original ones October last year, when I did the shed area, and they need realigning slightly so that the front removable one fits properly.  There’s plenty of un-composted material to go back in, and once that’s all done I’ll be cutting the comfrey down again to add on top.  It’s not that long ago I did this but as you can see it’s already grown again.


This nasturtium has grown alongside the log pile, and is well away from the others.  I certainly didn’t sow any seeds in this area. I’ll leave it to self-seed and see if any appear there next year.


Take care, and have a good weekend!

    The Nasturtiums are bonny. You appear to have a lot of physical work to do. ‘May the force be with you’. Xxx

    Compost is brilliant isn’t it. Soil health is everything in the garden I think, and the comfrey will be a really good addition. I have a bit growing by my compost heaps, but it’s too shady there now under the big cherry tree and it doesn’t do very well. CJ xx

    All looking very nice and tidy. Emptying a compost bay is on my list but I need to have some empty beds to tip it on first…

    Any robins waiting for a tasty treat when you’ve been emptying the compost? They seem to have a sixth sense and know when worms are likely to be on offer. I’m sure your nasturtiums will self seed readily, they usually do.

    Comfrey seems to be a wonder-plant for fertilizing. You seem to have a nice row of plants going.
    The volunteer nasturtiums are very pretty.


  6. Those Nasturtiums are so colourful.
    Enjoy your weekend.

    All the best Jan

    I don’t envy you emptying your compost heap. Good luck with it. Here’s to your nasturtiums self seeding. They are a ray of sunshine at this time of the year.xxx

    I’m amazed how well your nasturtiums do this late in the year!
