I enjoyed reading December 2012 Charles, good to see that Homeacres is coming along. I was told today that the horse manure that I have bagged up ready for next spring will go anaerobic is this correct? I thought that was what happens to grass clipping without any air. The manure is partically decomposed and has sawdust for carbon content.
Hi Sahira, well some people do like to worry other people!
If anuone tells you something, ask them to give their reasons, and I don’t see any here! For one thing there is little decompostion happening in winter, so bacteria need little air. Your manure is mostly decomposed anyway.
Even my compost heaps have minimal exchange of fresh air, you can imagine how little can arrive to the middle of any heap. Look how leaves rot down successfully in bin liners!
