I have my compost bin that I started this past fall to provide me with the base of what I need for this upcoming Spring. However, I have some younglings that will need to be transplanted into bigger vessels. So I purchased FFOF and added the following: EWC Perlite Pete Moss Blood & Bone meal Greensand Kelp meal Humus (soil form) Epsoma Plant tone & Garden lime Wet it and let it sit for a few days. Squeeze test is good, compresses then fluffs out again. I went about a 1/2 cup to a cup on all of these other that the perlite. The question is how the hell do I cook it with it being balls cold outside? Do you need to have it out in the sun or is "cooking" a term for letting that shit breakdown? How long do I need to let it break down?
