Ghetto compost, the way I make it....

| Ok, Im not sure you can technically call this compost...
I use dung and straw. THe dung is already dried the straw can just be mixed together for sub...
Anyhow this is what I do.
First I fill my compost tub half full with dry dung.
then I fill the other half with straw.
Then I fill the tub with water to the top.
I then add compost maker,
and allow it to soak for a week sometimes two.
I then pull the drain on the tub and let set for two days.
After that I flip the whole tub and let drain on the ground with the tub covering it.
The tub has a softball sized hole for a drain that allows air inside while composting in the sun.
I then turn the compost twice a week for about two weeks.
By then the compost is perfect.
No stink just nice organic aroma.
Today I noticed while turning the compost, there was an infestation of mushrooms!
I decided to dry the compost before they consume the goodies.
Thats it simple and easy

|After drying and prior to use, do you sterilize the compost??|

| I'm guessing he
pasteurizes before inoculating.
a full blown sterilization ([email protected]) would kill many of the symbiotic organisms that he has worked so hard to germinate (i.e. composting), and therefore ruin the best parts of the substrate.

|Leave it outside and do nothing it will colonize fine.|
