A quick tour around the different forms of compost in our Back to Eden style permaculture garden

Update on the leaf mould and the harvest of the chicken compost using wood chips, as well as the first egg of the year!

The deep litter consists of 2 feet of wood chips that we constantly top up with more wood chips, leafy greens and grass clippings, 5 weeks in the compost is almost ready so we harvested a few barrow loads to use as mulch.

  1. That leaf compost looks incredible! And the composted woodchip from the chook pen is gold for plants. Lovely backyard you have there – very nice 🙂

  2. Great update. Lots of great compost and leaf mound. You have quite a production line going there.

  3. Looking good. I want to ask about the wood chip/chicken bedding material. It looks like as it comes fresh out of the coop after some break down you are using it as a mulch layer with the benefit of added fertility. Is that correct? It looks good for that but maybe not something that would be worked into the soil just yet. I know from another video I watched that you are going no dig so am I right to assume that your putting in these layers of material leaving the rest to to time and soil microbes? Am I following you right or is there another idea behind what you're doing here?

  4. That is a massive egg!!! That's some good looking compost. Can't wait to see the fruits of this labor. Cheers!!!
