After three years of thinking I'll never get the hang of making compost, I dug over the compost bin to discover that under the dry top layer there was rich lovely compost! What a treat!
The compost bin doesn't get much sun; is that perhaps why it's taken so long to break down? I didn't spot any worms - I thought there would be lots in there.
I have spread it across a new bed and also into my raised veg beds with some left over to put in the greenhouse bed.
And the dry stuff on the top......
