The end of winter flowed graciously into spring here where I live. We have had record breaking temps and the compost left in the box over the winter is all thawed and workable. I have been turning the compost daily for a week now and have noticed a huge breakdown in the debris already. We added pond sludge in the box also for the spring pond clean up...this should be a great box of dirt when its done.
I also started another area to keep my brown material in for the season, which I add as I go along. My husband is in the process of building me another box so it will have a real place to be placed soon.
I made this new raised garden at the end of last year to use up all the rich dirt I made last year and cant wait to plant it.
