Germany has extremely efficient recycling centres and they do is they collect all of the organic matter that people have or the compost that people are tossing away and they bring it to these large centres where they break it down and let it heat up and decompose and then eventually after a year or so maybe a little longer, It’s available to the public in the form of compost Or normal soil, really awesome soil. that you can buy and take home and put into your raised beds, or your normal gardens or as top soil So over here we have top soil and over here we have (humus) something we like to call compost which is actually just a finished compost. Not really a ‘compost’ in the sense that anything still breaking down. So today we’re here to put some in the back of this lovely trailer and take it on to the allotment. this lovely lady is about to use the big tractor and scoop it up and fill the trailer. and then were going to take it to the allotment So lets watch! “It’s steamy? Really? Like it’s too hot?” compost as it breaks down it actually heats up. this is still hot for two reasons One its still breaking down on some very small level and also because the sun of course is heating it up and its black so its nice and hot inside. So it looked like a ton of soil and it actually is. Its about one cubic meeter or half a ton But when you have it in there it doesn’t look like that big. So we’re going to take it to the allotment where we’re going to shove it out and it’ll be about 17 or so wheelbarrows and then we’ll come back and do this four more time possible 5 if we have the energy. load number two It’s been a pretty exciting two weeks. We pulled all the weeds out, rototilled it. There weren’t and worms in there to worry about. we put down horse manure (well rotted horse manure) then we put down three tons of finished compost (humus) and now I’m putting the strawberries back in the ones that we found here amongst all the weeds two weeks ago. and we rescued, took us two days to rescue all these strawberries. And now I’m putting them back in and I’m watering So hopefully they’ll be happy. Like said it’s been a long two weeks and I am ready for a hot bath and a cup of tea. Thanks for watching! I’ll see you in the next episode. Stay tune coz there will be a lot more to come for this little allotment.
