Denise: This afternoon J and I dug out the compost heap. It’s 2 pallets by 2 pallets in size, and after rotting down is about 1m full, so probably 10 tonne or more to shift. I was on the heap digging and loading, J was running and up and down with the barrows to the growing ‘pods’ (each within a low wooden shelter fence). 3 pods requiring compost, each taking 18 barrowfulls, plus 9 barrows each for two greenhouses and 2 barrows for a 2.4m x 0.8m growing box we use for salads. By J’s reckoning that’s 74 barrow loads. Absolutely exhausting, but incredibly satisfying, putting goodness back into the soil and the promise of good things next year.
