Compost looks like slimy sludge and something else beginning with s! Help!
Hi all, my first attempt at composting waste vegetables peelings, fruit, tea grouts, grass cuttings etc was going well until the rains of August subjected the plastic compost bin to flooding when I was away on holiday for a few days. 🥺. I also now realise that I added far too much grass cuttings in one go without adding browns. I did add a lot of cardboard pieces thereafter, but the result is that I am left with brown slurry and clumps of wet grass cuttings, that smells awful. I have since emptied the contents and have been trying to dry it out in the sun in my wheelbarrow and recycling boxes. The contents has dried out, but it is still in clumps and my question is will it ever be good enough to use as compost for my raised bed or should I dispose of it and start again? Any advice gratefully received. This gardening malarkey takes up a lot of time and patience! Thanks 😊
