I wanted to get the cap off the truck for a week this fall to get some compost going this winter, but it didn't happen yet.

My 5 cubic pallets from last year were mostly horse manure, arbor vitae shreddings, leaves and kitchen scraps. I innoculated with redworms as well. They find their place in there. Those piles were down to 2 cu pallets at end of spring, and probably equal about 1 cu pallet now. I transplanted some canteloupe and watermelon on top in the summer, so got some use of that area even as it was finishing.

I do have to watch my dogs; they will steal horse manure and wolf it down like they haven't been fed for a week.
