Composting is a fun activity related to landscaping and / or horticulture can be done throughout the year, because they continually produce organic remains, at least those of the kitchen in the home composting.
The type of debris generated, both garden, such as the garden or the kitchen, vary throughout the year, depending on the season.
To get the best compost, it must always maintain the optimum conditions of process, regardless of the type of debris that occur each season. To this end, manage materials that must be composted so that, throughout the year, this activity can be so rewarding with simplicity and comfort.
Anyone with a garden or a garden at his home noted that in autumn, especially in winter, in most outdoor plants stop, at least apparently, many of the characteristic of living organisms leave to grow, flower making, to make new leaves or branches, etc. Deciduous trees look dead even when it's cold season.
But really, life continues, albeit at a very low, almost to maintain minimum living conditions and basic survival metabolism (the sap continues to flow, albeit slowly, through the interior of the plant), awaiting the arrival of good time.
In late fall or early winter compost should bring back to Earth because plants need more nutrients, renewing the chemicals needed to produce the defenses needed to fight cold and other potential enemies such as parasites , drought, etc.
It is at this time of year when the orchards and gardens generate higher volumes of debris from deciduous plants, because they lose all their leaves and, furthermore, if cut, the cut branches accumulate in piles that can become of considerable size.
One of the conditions for a good compost is to mix it remains moist, such as cooking, with more dry, as leaves fall from trees. If the orchard or garden are few deciduous trees or shrubs, certain to produce significant quantities of leaves and pruned branches that will be used to mix with the remains green when making compost.
But very likely, over a significant portion of these dry materials, and must not forget that the mix of wet and dry debris must be made to ensure proper proportions to produce a good compost. The recommended percentage is to 50% of each material, approximately, and depending on the time of year and humidity that has the composter.
If you pour the remaining dry material to compost, the ideal conditions would be altered in the process, which would slow considerably and, moreover, the resulting compost would lose efficiency and quality. Therefore, it is best to store surplus winter remains dry, it will be needed when the good weather.
Turning to the seasons, everyone has noticed that spring is the season of rebirth of life in nature and, therefore, also in the orchards and gardens, the plants begin to flower, they grow back and sprout new leaves and branches and field dress new and vivid color.
It is time to collect the compost from the compost and spread it through the orchard or garden, because plants need the nutrients of the compost to produce all the new bodies that will generate.
In the kitchen will continue to generate debris that will wet composting and, therefore, will have to mix with dried remains. But if you look at our garden or yard you will see that everything is green and there are no dry materials to match the green of the kitchen. Then quickly go to the store is dry and there remains, if it has been sighted, you will find all the material you will need to mix with the green that will be generated.
Before pouring the composter branches and other debris long or bulky, whether they are dry and green, you have to chop or shred properly so that optimum conditions are maintained in a good composting process and it develops quickly and efficient.
As we move through the summer and autumn approaches will meet the life cycles of plants. Some die, others will be swept away because they have produced the crop that is needed, others will be shedding its flowers, leaves, fruits, twigs, etc. Gradually will accumulate debris to be deposited in the warehouse of dry, already planning the next course of composting.
