I love the holidays where lots of folks enjoy eating, that means more food scraps for the compost piles!

I going out on the prowl today all over several neighborhoods and businesses, to collect truck loads of old pumpkins and hay bales for the piles. Plus I think I'll try aerobically, hot composting and making some aerated teas, out of old chicken and turkey wastes, if I have enough to use.

Yum! Yum! Homemade chicken/turkey blood-bone meal or turkey emulsion! (LOL)

Happy Gardening everybody!

Do you go to the trouble of chopping up the turkey neck before placing it in the pile? Just curious...

Not really. I usually chop large chunky stuff in my stockpiles with either my hoe or a mattock. The extra nitrogen and aerobic microbes in my piles digest the bones very quick.

Hubby and I were peeling and chopping on Thanksgiving day, and looking at the pile of good compost ingredients, I suggested we go around to the neighbors and ask for their stuff. He didn't appreciate that idea, unfortunately. Oh well!

Too bad. I think it is a great idea! The lady I previously lived next door to would give me her kitchen scraps. Another lady gave me her dog drops! :)
