compostbinopenMoisture is a key ingredient in composting.  Normally at this time of year my composting area would be covered by snow or at least very wet from melting snow.

But not this year.  Record high temperatures and on the driest February on record have dried the compost out.  Without the moisture the composting process almost stops.

My solution, water the compost.  I started doing just that week and I’ll keep it up every few days as long as it stays so dry.
