The pumpkins have rotted down nicely and I ended up putting a load of leaves that I picked out the herb patch into the compost bin. They’ll need a few green things on top but that should be okay.
It’s unlikely that much will happen to the compost over the next few days / weeks. I am told (by my Mum) that it is going to be cold this week. I’ve had a look at the BBC weather app and today it is meant to be 0C (32F) at 9am in London and tomorrow it is meant to be -3C (27F) at 9am. Woohoo! The new down parka was not a total waste of money!
It is also going to be cold in the IoW but it isn’t going to get below freezing (because it almost never does here).
