How To Create Compost To Be Used As Manure For Plants by my2chains(m): 10:05pm On Feb 11, 2020
In this article you will learn how to create your own free organic compost to be used as plants manure,

this is for those that can not afford manure that are been sold in bags,

or to be used by anyone suspecting the use of animal manures has been the cause of diseases and infections to his plants,

just get a big bucket or container and drill a small hole at the bottom,

now get some weeds or grass that will be enough,

put small amount of weeds inside the bucket and add little moist soil ontop

repeat this proccess till the bucket is filled up

indeed this is how you should do it

put weeds or grass inside the bucket and add some sands ontop to press it down and be compressed,

then add another weeds or grass untop again and put more sands upon it and press it down

this is how you will do it to fill the big bucket or container.

make sure you fill it to the top and steer it well with a stick occationally

then lastly pour a little amount of water on the compost so to start the composting period,

after adding water then you cover the top of the bucket,

make sure the compost pile is always moist at all times,

you can be watering it when you see its a bit dry,

you are to leave this to compost for a period of 2-4 months before it finally breaks down to be used as manure to your plants

in other words do use only unwanted plants leafs and grass as they are weak and will compost much more faster

for better use of this compost try to bury them below the soil before even planting or sowing your seeds,

or spray them very close to the roots of your plants and water

this are the free ways to create your own very organic manure compost to be used by your plants

some of all this animal manures can be infectious enough to carry diseases into your farmlands

one bad infected chicken manure can potentially kill off plants

just to tell you there are many alternatives for having manures and plants fertilizers you can create with your own hands

or better still you can just use unwanted vegetables and fruits peels,

banana peels,
orange peels
pineapple peels
egg shells
used tea bags
or any rotten or spoilt vegetable fruit

you can just use anything as far it can be decomposed
