We’ve had a lull in ‘fresh’ input of compost and food scraps from the outside. I’m sure we’ll have that flow coming in again, but in the meantime, it’s an opportunity to dig into some stockpiles of nutrient and quality food for our chickens. Through resting compost and the evolving biota that forms in that to thick layers of deposit bulk material placed in the fall and allowed to mature all winter into heavy worm population layers, we should have a good deal of high quality food stored for our chickens, living within the resting corners of the system.
We talk about the design for that and strategies for interacting with it in this video.
