Composting How To – Trench and Piles

Try the direct composting method in your garden with trench composting. After my strawberries have finished producing for the season, I will prepare the row for composting. This involves first storing up kitchen scraps like fruit and vegetable parts and keeping them in a plastic bag in the freezer. At the end of the week, I’ll take what I have to the garden to be composted. I’ll dig a trench down the row where my strawberry plants were and then place them all inside the trench. Add some grass clippings and move the soil back over the top.
Since done at the end of the season – they will have 6 months or more to break down before I replant in the coming spring. Video above shows the process and also how I built composting bins using free pallets.
