Does anyone know of a way I can do a bit of composting? Living in a flat above a shop means that the noramal route of composting means that not only do I not have the space, I don’t have any ground for a bin to sit upon. No ground, no lovely worms and wiggly creatures breaking down my food scraps. There is the option of the Bokashi bin, but that doesn’t really compost; all it does is ‘pickle’ the food ready to be dug in the ground where it continues to break down and I don’t feel I have enough pots to dig in the stuff.
There is the option of a wormery. A lovely little wormery with lovely wee worms chomping through all the lovely food I don’t eat and the odd dead head I cut off my blooms. The more I think of it, it’s the most logical composter to get. It’s small, compost can be stored until I need it, I get a nice liquid fertliser and I get lots of lovely pet worms. Only problem is, I’m not sure how much work they are. How often do these worms need to be fed? I have a tendancy to dissapear for the odd weekend. We’re also in a bit of a sun trap and during the main part of the day it can get very (read: really, really bloody) hot so I’m not entirely sure if it would be very humane to keep worms there.
Still it would be nice to have something that could look after food and small bits of garden waste. I have to admit, I can produce a fair bit of food waste which is a bad thing I know and I’m trying to cut back on that issue at the moment as that’s the priority, obviously. However, I still want a little composting thing. Any suggestions?
The first gardening post in ages. Hooray! There’s more to come too, as soon as I get the camera out.
