Compost: Making A Tumbler Bin Composter

video synopsis on compost by: Asim A.

compost south jerseyHow to make compost and a Bin to cook your compost pile in 14-21 days.

Cost of my composter bin $8.00 + 2 hours labor.

Here are my sources:

Kitchen scraps, pig manure, grass clippings, newspaper dry, leaves.

My welder charged me $5.00 for one long 1 inch sq galvanized tube and also cut it down in 3 pieces to fit my drum. Gave him $2.00 tip and bought me a piece of wire to secure tubes for $1.00. Total cost of my bin $8.00.

The old drum I was no longer using …

… Tools needed:

a drill, a knife and a screw driver.

Materials needed:

1 plastic drum, 6 nails or strong pins, 3-1 square inch tube, 3 hinges & lock, 3 yards of wire, 1 sq foot of Zinc.

Drill 3/8” holes all over your composter. Your pile needs to breathe for faster cooking. Our friendly bugs need to find their way in to help discompose your file even faster!

To compost in 14 to 21 days you need to help Mother Nature brake down your Carbons, Nitrogenes. Use a lawn mower to grind everything in your path! Don’t spend $$ in fancy shredder machines!

Here comes the good stuff:

Kitchen scraps & dried pig manure.

Global Warming? Sun dry your manure.

It’ll be easier to carry. Use the Sun!

Mow it down!

Yummmy … mower is Happy Happy J

Your carbons (dry leaves) & nitrogene (grass clippings) all in the same bag

Dump it in your new composter …

did you know that Human Urine is very high in Nitrogene and used as #1 Compost ACTIVATOR?

If you are NOT under medication; DO NOT FLUSH YOUR URINE!

Pure human urine MAY burn some plants roots; thin it with 1 part of urine to 20 of water

Activate your compost!

Greens & kitchen scraps contain water as well; so basically, you MOIST your compost. Add more water ONLY when needed.

The squares tubes will brake while rotating your compost.

Ready?

Roll it up!

An effective compost pile is about as damp as a well wrung-out sponge. Squeeze some compost. If water drips out of your hands then add more dry leaves.

Expose your bi to 6 hours of full sun daily. Microorganisms will start to grow and will heat up your compost.

If your pile is too small, too much sun exposure can kill these lovely critters.

And this is your finished product after 14-21 days …

… soil-like-earthy smell-sweet compost.

Don’t own a farm or a house with a backyard?

You can also compost in your apartment.

Why compost?

For FREE “All Organic Fertilizer” To send less garbage to the landfill

To save $$ in water bills (garden treated w/compost requires less watering) for higher per crop fruit production

 … and what about Global Warming?

It is time to use our own resources and stop damaging our planet even more! L

What is your reason to compost?

Mines are these:

Pink Guava (Guayaba pera rosada)

Sour Cooking Orange (Naranja agria de cocinar)

Tannia roots (Yautia, Malanga)

Breadfruit (Panapen, pen de fruta)

Sun Dryiny fresh picked Annatto (Achiote, achiotina, bija)

Compost And Your Land

Compost And Your Land

video synopsis on compost by: Asim A. 

compost new jerseySort it present Compost written by Chris Will and Lewis.

Hi there I am Chris, today I am in entertainment park. I come here today because before we think about composting, we are going to think about how waste is dealt with in the past. And to do that we are going to turn back the clock, a long long way, we are going to turn the clock back to, before there were TV, before there were cars even before there were books.

Way the way back to 5000 years ago. Back in those days though there were few humans lived in Britain and other all those countries which were covered in forest like this and the amazing thing about that time is that there were no waste, no waste at all, so while looking at this forest, we are looking back into the past that how Britain looked all those years ago. Now as I looked around this forest floor it’s hard to see any rubbish or litter or I can find a rode leaves, lots of sticks like these, plants and underneath them all, lots and lots of soil. So why is there no waste in the forest, I think we need Dr. Rotalotta to explain.

Dr: hmmm! Forest let me see leaves, trees ah, I have got it now every year the trees produce there very narrow braches of leaves for spring time. And then all you have to sudden the leaves collect the light from the sun to make their very good food. But the days getting older of comes around the leaves become brown and shimmer and crispy fall from the tree to look around in a way they are like the rubbish of the tree. But this rubbish doesn’t sit on the ground forever.

However, but you understand what comes next, you want to know a little something about MICRO-ORGANISM. Now micro-organisms, they live absolutely everywhere, from the top of the highest mountain to the bottom of the deepest oceans. Just a single spoon of soil, there are more micro-organisms then there are humans in the whole wide world. They live in the grass, they live in the trees, they live in ponds, they live under rocks, they live on your hands and they even live on your bottom. Now some micro-organisms are very very helpful to us, they live inside of your stomach, helping to digest you food … so why not composting in your home, although it’s natural.

Compost: Setting Up a Worm Composting Bin

Compost: Setting Up a Worm Composting Bin

video synopsis on compost by: Oleksii R.

compost south jerseyI am going to tell you how to set up Deluxe Rubbermaid worm compost bin. Let’s start by talking with some supplies you are going to need to set up this bin. For starters you need couple of Rubbermaid tubs. I prefer the Rubbermaid Roughneck tub. You don’t even need to use Rubbermaid, of course. Anything that plastic and stackable type of bin will work.

If you want to drill some sorts, I prefer to use 1/8 inch drill bit, anything bigger run a risk of having a lot more worms. Anything smaller and you can potentially have plugged up holes, which of course are going to spoil your drainage process. Cardboard make an excellent bedding material for worm bin, that it is what I prefer to use. You can also use pit mass or shredded newspapers.

I find that forms really like cardboard and it helps to balance system nicely.  Also you are going to need some food scraps. All point of setting up worm bin often time is to handle your kitchen wastes, so adding some food scraps is certainly good idea. In terms of best food materials, fruit and vegetable wastes are excellent as well as coffee grounds and tea bags. Some things you keep in mind during moderation goes.

Spills and fruits themselves, onions and really spicy food, like hot peppers, and anything that starchy, bread or rice or pasta materials should always be uses in moderation. All these can make a problem in our bin if add too many of them. Something you definitely want to avoid in your bin completely: any sort of meat, dairy products like cheese or yogurt and anything that oily.

All of these materials are tough to break down. Some sort of spray bottle that can help to spray down your system and get everything moist. I made some supports for my upper bin by cutting the bottoms of small milk cartons. Any sort of blocks you put in the bottom work perfectly fine.

The reason why I am doing this, that if you just place the top upper bin inside the lower bin – it’s going to end up getting wage down and it’s going to impede airflow. The whole point of setting up such kind of compost bin is to allow for a lot of airflow and allow for nice drainage of moisture from upper bin to lower compost bin.

Compost: Composting at Home

Compost: Composting at Home

video synopsis on compost by: Oleksii R.

compost new jerseyI created “Enviromom” to help other parents take baby steps for the greener lifestyle. Today we are going to demonstrate couple of different ways to compost your fruit and vegetables scraps. Composting is important because the organic materials like food and yard debris release messing into the air when land field.

Messing is a gas that far more toxic to the environment then carbonic oxide. It is important to minimize this effect anyway we can. Here we are in my kitchen. My family uses stinkless steel compost kitchen pill, with two carbon filters in the lid, which keep stink factor in a minimum. We keep it under the sink so I can have easy access. For along time we use large plastic container with lid, which also works well.

But kids have harder time getting a lid on and off. We put our vegetable and fruits scraps, coffee grounds and egg shells into the pill and empty it into backyard composter every two or three days in summer and about once a week during the winter. The backyard composter we use is called an earth machine. We simply dump the fruit scraps in and add an equal amount of brown matter like dead leaves. The compost should be a little damp so in a dry month I usually add a little water to help with decomposition.

After several months you should have rich dark compost to add to your garden. But creating compost and adding it to your garden shouldn’t be your goal. Just keeping your food scraps out of land fields is enough. I have never emptied this composting while I add organic matter to it every week. It never fills up because constant braking down. I found the using of system like earth machine is one of the easiest ways to compost for my family. Now let’s see how make compost in other house.

In our house we also use the compost container. It’s about a gallon inside. We are filling up it every few days. When the compost packet is full, it goes out to the backyard. Sometimes we put it into a little can if we don’t want to dig that day. By the weekend we usual have few bags of ready to compost food scraps. We find nice place in the garden, dig hole, chap up the scraps into smaller pieces to compost faster and that’s all we done.

How To Make Quality Compost

How to make quality compost…

video synopsis on compost by: Oleksii R.

compost new jerseyOrganic compost is the best garden soil amendment that money can buy. What it’s really weird – you don’t have to buy it. It’s something that you can make by yourself. If few people are maintaining compost piles in their garden these days, it has to do with how people see them.

Rather than see compost pile like this or like this, too many people this of composting like this: the garden is an equivalent of rocket science.

Well-built compost pile is a sort of miniature ecosystem that is come to countless numbers of microorganism knowing as soil bacteria As with other living beings soil bacteria need certain basic things in order to survive. They need a home, food and water, air and little bit of tender loving care. Let’s talk first about home and where the best place to be situated for the compost pile. Choosing the spot for compost pile it’s a lot like choosing of location for the kitchen garden, the closer the better. By choosing of location that is convenient to use more likely get things into your compost pile and get finish compost out.

Soil scientists and hardcore compostochologist liked to talk about achieving the optimal carbon-nitrogen ratio. But it’s that rocket science we were referring before. Much easier way to think of things is in terms of “soft green” and “woody browns” ones. Examples of green materials include such things as grass clippings, fruit and vegetables waste and plant material. Brown wooden materials can be such things as straw, leaves and untreated cardboard and paper.

You want to be adding these components to compost pile according to these proportions: 3 parts of “soft green” for every one part “woody brown” materials. We have talked a bit about what goes into a compost pile, let’s talk now about second – pile structure. One helpful way of thinking of things in terms of “garden lasagna“, where we alternate green and brown layers in this way, separating each with a layer of soil in order to be sure that we have enough soil. Doing this helps ensure that we have the right carbon to nitrogen ratio, but in the same time the right amount of water and air in our pile.

The last ingredient I referred before is  “tender loving care” and by this I mean an amount attention that we are prepare to give to our compost pile.

Making Your Own Compost

Making your own compost….

video synopsis on compost by: Oleksii R.

compost new jerseyToday we are talking about turning trash in treasure – we are going to make our own compost. Compost is ones living thing, turned into soil conditioner, weed preventer, fertilizer. It’s taking those things, putting them together and managing the process so they decompose and leave you with a great result.

Composting works by taking specific materials that you want to use some browns and some greens, we will talk in a second, mixing them together. When you do that, there are always millions of microbes in a soil and they are come up, start up to break down that stuff and turn it in fertilizer nutrients that plants need. We say compost happens, it means you don’t need to do a lot of works, but it does help to have a few things that make it little easier to manage. You can buy fancy bins, but you can also just start with something as simple as roiling chicken wire, that you form into a circle and fills with a materials.

We have what we call brown part of compost; also you want to have balance of greens and browns. Browns are stuff that starts dry decay – straw, shredded leaves. Those are great browns ingredients you want to mix up three to one with green ones. It’s a good base layer to put down. Great time to start with composting to put first all those leaves. This is the first layer. And it’s important that air circulate, in other case it will start to smell and attract animals. Next come green ingredients, which are fresher, not dry.

Grass clipping is an excellent compost ingredient. Peelings and egg shells are also excellent ingredients; the shells themselves are the only animal source ingredient and really high with calcium. You also add here garden plants, which are finished. We know it’s brown but manure (chickens, horses, and cows) is a great ingredient for a compost pile and they are green because are high in nitrogen.

The first thing you need to make sure that you pile is big enough to start decomposing. This bin is a perfect size: three feet high, three feet wide, and three feet deep. Then you have critical mass, pressure which begins the decomposing process. If you are very enthusiastic compost maker and you turn it every week – two months and you have compost.

Building Your Own Compost Pile

Building Your Own Compost Pile

video synopsis on compost by: Oleksii R.

compost south jerseyCompost is organic matter that is decomposed or broken down until it resembles soil.  Major soil particle are:  sand, silt and clay, relatively equal amount.

Thoroughly decomposed compost contains lots of humus: a soil improving material which plants need. A well-constructed compost pile heats up fast, decompose uniformly and quickly, kills many diseased, insects and weed seeds, doesn’t smell, easy to turn and maintain.

Putting your compost in a container helps keep it wet, prevent animals to get into it. Here what we need to know to build good compost pile, choose shady location out of the way. Create a wire tube that 3 feet across or build three sides box, that 3 or 4 feet height and wide. Four-sided stackable compost container may also be purchased in a local garden retail sore. Add a 6 inch layer of a brown organic matter, such as hay, straw or old leaves to the bottom of the container.

Add a 3 inch layer of organic matter such as green grass clippings, cow or horse manure, kitchen scraps such as egg shells, old bread, vegetable and fruit peels, coffee grounds or even high nitrogen fertilizer on top of the brown layer. Than add a thin layer of dirt. Repeat these layers, watering each one as you go until the pile is about 3 or 4 feet tall. A smaller pile long heat up well and larger pile will be difficult to manage. Within two days use pitchfork to mix together layers well.

Cover the pile with waterproof tarp or lid which comes with store container. Keep the following out of your compost bin: kitchen scraps like meat, oil ,fish , dairy products and bones, they attract animals to compost pile; keep out weeds that have gone to seed, diseased or insect-infected plants, grass or weeds treated by herbicide; dog, pig, cat and human waste.

If you built the pile carefully it starts to cock or heat up within a week. Keep it cocking by watering occasionally. Don’t let it be to soggy, because the pile still needs air. Turn your pile with the pitchfork when it cools down by mixing together the layers well. You want to make sure that entire pile is uniform temperature, not just the middle of the pile is hot. Let it cock again. You should have finished compost after 2, 2-3 turnings. The finish compost should be dark, cool crumble and dirty smelling.

Compost and Organic Gardening

Compost and Organic Gardening

video synopsis on compost by: Oleksii R.

compost south jerseyIn this clip we are going to talk about making compost. This is wonderful black gold, which you can make from the all of the leftover, which you didn’t know what to do with.

Every time you rake the yard, every time you have a bag of a grass clipping or your kitchen vegetable and all kinds of other plant material can be composted to yield nice reach, dark, supercharged plant food. Now compost contains a lot of things.

Many different plants store different nutrients and keep them in a dead leaves or a dead grass blades or a lot of different dead plants part. These nutrients are released into compost and are available already for your vegetable to eat. All we have to make compost, very simply a pile up all of our refuses and make sort of garbage dump from all these households’ leavings.

Time will do all the work. We don’t have to get out here and flip this and water it and mess with it. If we want to we can turn on our composts piles and flip them over and make new compost pile right next to the old one. Storing all the material will give us faster result. We need to maintain a certain moisture level. This should feel as damp as a wring out sponge. You can now imagine how damp that would be – just slightly moist, all day and all night just slightly damp.

The more carbon material you have (basically all your dead leaves, dried grass clippings, old mulch), the better compost will be. The nitrogen material is green stuff like grass clippings or other type of fresh vegetable or plant waste. This stuff you need only a little bit, may be one twenties of the volume of green stuff when you do carbon stuff. Some people will say even one forties of volume.

But it all will work in dirt. It will just take longer for some mixtures than for another. You may see on the market a compost tumbler, this is fine little device but you may not like price of it. May you can have pile on your back yard. In this case we can make compost tumbler out of the old trash can. Simply drilled holes all around trash can and I can put there all my compost, spray it with the garden hose and put lid on it….instant compost.
