The hotbin composter – the big reveal. Did it work?

Firstly I must apologise for this incredibly late post. We did a big reveal video showing the hotbi composter and the results way back in July and unfortunately, I forgot to share it here. Unforgivable!

So for those of you who were watching out for this… from July

And just for a special update for you guys, we’ve emptied the bin at least twice since then and been more than happy each time.

I’ve got a bit of a routine going with this now, I empty the compost onto a big tarpaulin, as it’s easier for me to deal with, I then drag this into the greenhouse and leave it for a few days to dry out a bit, before sieving it and adding it to the beds etc as needed.

I just feel that straight from the bin its a bit wet to use other than to dig it through, but as we garden in raised bed, there is limited options for digging through properly, so instead I sieve it and use the best stuff for the beds etc and put the larger pieces back into the bin. It works great though.

At one point I had 6 sacks of compost stored behind the shed because I couldn’t use it fast enough to keep up.

So thumbs up, big success.
