Default New bin

So here's my new bin made out of fiberglass acoustic panels left over from a job. It's 13 ft across and four feet high. This pic shows the 13th pickup load going on top.

The material is horse manure and softwood shavings about 50/50 so for my super alkaline soil I add copious ammonium sulfate and sulphur so that it ends up being a richer fertilizer and ph balancer for my poor soil.

Even though the night time lows are in the single digits and daytime highs in the thirties, it is starting to get hot. On the left you can see last Summer's load turned out in a big pile. I'll use that cooked stuff this spring.
