Living in Scotland I don't ever have this problem but when I am cleaning out my aquarium I often put some of the water on the compost. You may be able to save some of your other waste water - dishes, shower/bath to put on the heap?
I was just wondering about that for a project of mine. I want to start a compost heap in a large 'wheelie bin', maybe 200 or 400 litres (45 or 96 pounds). I was thinking that if I need to move it but it is too heavy to move, I could dry it out to make it lighter. Would the composting start working again when I wet it down again? Would it need some kind of 'starter' or new ingrediets to get it going again?OR you could just let it try off, and basically put it all on hold until the wet season. It will wait patiently for you while it's dried out.
Yep! It'll start back up. Bacteria are very good at forming protective shells to hold them over for dry spells (if they couldn't, there wouldn't be any bacteria because dry surface conditions would kill them off and prevent their spread).Originally Posted by shadyseattle
