Today I decided to make use of my compost from the past 8 months. 2/3 of my garden was killed because of a drought while I was on vacation. So, I hacked it up with a machete, and put it into a new batch of compost. First, I moved the container to a new location. Then, I moved the chunky stuff which had not finished composting into the relocated bin. Next I used a shovel to move the finished compost into the garden as fertilizer.

After spreading the compost into the garden, I raked it into the top of the soil until I was sure it was evenly distributed. Now the garden bed is ready for planting some peppers. I’m going to use a soaker hose this time to make sure that the garden gets properly watered, and doesn’t die in a drought.
