Turning The Beds
The compost bay that was reconstructed by using old beds last year, see blog entry 'Six Old Beds' 4th October 2012, has had to be repaired today. The four beds that were placed at the back of the bay, have now been turned on their ends in order to create a sturdier construction, as well as being supported by new back boards.
To support the left side of the bay, angled wooden supports have been constructed to prevent any future collapse. It is hoped that this new, improved design will be stronger, especially if it is hit by the grab attachment of the New Holland tractor when turning the compost heap, see blog entry 'How Do You Keep Warm?' 26th November 2010.
