Composting

Much of our composting is now being done right in the garden with our lasagna methods. The biggest issue we’re facing right now is lack of “raw materials”

I plan to rent or borrow a chipper/shredder this year and shred the Pampas grass instead of burning it. We have a fairly steady source of horse manure, and I now have a source of fine wood chips that works for animal bedding. What we don’t have yet is a good supply of coarse wood chips for the bottom layer of our garden plots. We got several truckloads this year from a neighbor and it still wasn’t enough to quite finish the first garden.
