[attachment=2]et 004.JPG[/attachment][attachment=2]et 004.JPG[/attachment]Made a free haul before breakfast last year. 10 bags of compost, some cans, plus blocks for a raised bed for minis.
This was very good when used to plant seedlings in the ground. It looks an smells like something out of a pig pen. With the heavy clay soil the holes need to be flooded once or twice then a big gob added and flooded again. Next muck an opening for the seedling, fill in, add the small spoon of Miracle- Gro or such, press down, and water again. Osmocote can be too strong at times.

The photos come out in reverse order.
Anyway the compost pile is good to use in the spring before fertilizing.
If used in pots or cups mix 50% with dirt and stir in some perlite.
Most is worm casings and a lot will wash out so deep trays are used to save the compost tea in 5 gal. buckets, up to seventy gal. at a time and added to the top of the seedlings in the dry shallow trays.
