Soilman, the presenter on this video, could stand only 58 seconds of demonstration. The reason for this was a large bag of chickensh..t. Yes, that’s what it takes to really get your compost heap into the stratosphere. Soilman, a gardener of British origin judging from his accent and sense of humor, opened the bagfull of chickensh..t his Mom donated him — “Thanks, Mum,” he said — and with visible paroxysms of revulsion emptied the bag into the compost bin. Reeling, he managed to say: “Anything that smells that bad must be good.”
Soilman then advised that you need to spread it all around, and then tried to follow his own counsel, but was unable to do so. “I can’t really,” he said in a strangled voice, “It’s all congealed and disgusting. The smell is outrageous.” He staggered backward from the bin and then rallied somewhat to deliver this parting shot was: “It (chickensh..t) is packed full of nitrogen so don’t put it on anything until it has rotted down well or it will burn the plants. You have been warned.”
Indeed we have.
