New England, June 2015

Marc, the chipmunk is small enough to fit *through* the fencing...so long as his cheeks are empty that is...

And actually nothing seems to want to eat the asparagus (except for the asparagus beetles of course). Which is why we took the risk of adding those two beds. A bunch of years ago I planted a few as an experiment and when nothing bothered them we added a few more to that first bed which is along the outside of the fence by bed #6.

At the time I was the only one who liked asparagus, but now that DH has decided he likes it too, we added the two beds in the picture. Here's a shot of the original asparagus planting:

It really is a thing of wonder that the critters have left it alone all these years.

(Oh, dear-- does anyone know how to rotate an image clockwise? Sanderson? Sorry about that folks…)

Compost: Berkeley 18 day [hot] method

Plantoid just mentioned this hot, quick method for making compost in another topic "Fertilizer in Bagged Mix."

I think the Berkeley method is a great way to quickly make your own compost, although I have never been able to make it in 18 days.  My fault for not turning it every 2 days.  I started daily recordings this year.  Pile #4 was started April 7 this spring and was finished in 27 days, then rested a week, for a total of 34 days.  It was turned a total of 7 times.  Pile #5 was started June 29, finished in 36 days and turned 8 times, then used on day 40.  The current pile #6 was started August 10 and turned 4 times so far.  I estimate it will be finished in 30 days, then rested a week.  So, up to 40 days from start to finish seems to be my pattern.  I will build one more, #7, in September.  I finally feel a lessening of the panic I've had, since I started SFG 1 1/2 years ago, that I don't have enough compost for making more MM and recharging used beds.  I should have a full bin volume (27 cu ft) of ready-to-use compost come next spring.

The cage is 3' x 3' x 3' inner dimensions, the minimum mass for hot or "hottie" compost.  The final volume is about 1/2, or 13 1/2 cubic feet.
