Another good way to get things composted

really fast

is to simply dig a hole in the garden and put it all in

(be careful about weed seed heads and roots).

Even quite twiggy stuff breaks down over winter

and the volume reduces quickly.

We did this in our allotment -

we had a huge amount of growth

to get rid of

because we could not manage

the intensity of planting by the previous owner -

and dug several trenches.

OK it was hard work

but we packed in so much,

and by spring it was wonderful,

just wonderful earth.

Worth trying even on a small scale

if you lack space.
