This is my first attempt at composting in a real compost maker. My brother gave this to me. Someone threw it away. So I decided to give it a try instead of just pouring all my compost stuff on the ground.(-: It is almost full of dirt/chicken manure/various other composting stuff. I spend 4 hours raking the entire chicken pen and cleaning out their house/nest etc on Thursday. So there will be a big supply of compost next spring from this job hopefully. Usually I pile the chicken stuff near the garden on the ground and by the next spring its ready to add to the garden. So we'll see how this goes.
Friday was another hot day. 113 degrees here. Some of my plants got burned but I think they will survive. Yesterday was 106 and today it should be about the same. I have a lot to get done before I start my work week.
Not much blooming today but here is a picture of the heirloom phlox (-:
