DannyDrummond's blog: Composting notes

Posted on Jul 27, 2021 4:05 PM

If it's sunny and above 85 F, I turn my composter daily. Cooler months and winter it is once a week.

There are no soldier fly in my compost this year. I dont recall what month they got real active last year but seems like it was summer. Maybe it was end of summer. I don't mind them but I don't miss them either.

There were a lot of gnats during the spring but none in at least 6 weeks. I assume it's just too hot in there for them.

There are fast moving ants going up and down the legs of the composter and into the tumbler. Tempting to kill them but I will leave them be.

Thank you NYC for the organic collection cans. Great for holding my completed compost. I'll post a pic later of the can.

I am still amazed at how fast banana peels disappear in the compost.
