is my compost ready (with video)
See link below to a 1 minute video I made of my compost pile today. I started this particular bin in late September and was hoping to use it in a couple of weeks when I plant my veggies in my raised beds.
Does it look ready yet?
If and when it is ready, should I mix it in with the soil in my raised beds or should I only top-dress it?
Another idea that came to mind was running it through a 1/4" screen and mixing the filtered compost into the soil in my raised beds while using the leftover bigger pieces as top dressing.
Lastly, Is adding compost to containers with 5-1-1 mix considered a no-no or at least not necessary?
Any suggestions for a newbie trying to put the fruit of his labor to use!
