Organic waste make up almost 70% of our household waste, and is useful for producing an excellent fertilizer for our plants.
What do we need to prepare organic manure?
One way to maintain soil fertility is by incorporating fertilizer.
And nothing better than an organic fertilizer, totally devoid of chemicals.
To prepare compost just we need a piece of land, patience and perseverance.
Food scraps that we use to prepare this manure are eggshells and fruit, vegetables, grass and used coffee, leaves, manure and some remains of pruning.
We must also find some pieces of old cotton cloth or pieces of sheet metal to cover the hole that we will perform.
We must never incorporate into our compost remains of glass, bones, meat, plastic or cans.
Making homemade compost or fertilizer
The first thing to do, then you have the basics, you dig a hole about 50 cm deep by 50 cm in diameter.
If you want to do just a little, we can use a 200 liter bin or the like, which incorporate the “ingredients” in the same way and proceed the same in their care.
In the background we locate the remains of pruning, organic waste above and finally, cover with a little soil. Every day adds a little more land we took when we did well.
You must keep the pot or bowl covered with fabrics or plates, and add some worms to help aerate the soil.
If it is hot, it is advisable to water the compost, since moisture is essential for the material to decompose and may form.
When the compost is ready?
The compost will be ready in about 2 or 3 months, if we begin to prepare in the summer. If we produce in the winter, it will take about 5 months.
For added security, we can go and when reviewing the payment notice that all organic matter that have been fully placed decomposed compost will be ready to incorporate into our plants. They appreciate it.
