The plot compost heap

Further to last Sunday’s post I started to dig out the plot compost heap this morning as it was ideal weather, being dry and sunny although a bit chilly  to start with.



Of course the robin was there watching what I was doing and  finding plenty to eat.  I don’t mind that it all takes me longer to do as I keep having to make sure I’m not about to  drop a spade full of earth on it.


I’m in no hurry to get this particular job done so I’ll only be digging out and sieving one barrow load most mornings when I’m there, and weather permitting.   If that changes and prevents me from doing so I can leave it through to the spring if need be.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

  1. Is that compost heap in your photo holding the contents from the entire summer? Has it decomposed enough for sieving? The robin is in fine form and thinks you should be there as often as possible!


    1. Liz yes, that’s the top half. No, it won’t be ready until next year. I’m digging out the bottom half which is ready. He sure is, and he’ll see me most mornings. xx


  2. Lovely to see your robin again, beautiful. Lots of leaves to be picked up and composted here, amongst other things. Weather looks good over the weekend, if a bit nippy. CJ xx
