Hi â€“ I heard this crazy idea that we can compost over the winter directly in our garden plots! Is this possible in the Vancouver, BC area? I started a new vegetable garden plot this spring and Iâ€™m trying to think how I can improve the soil â€“ the cheep and organic way. After this yearâ€™s crop is over and done with in the fall, I was thinking of digging a number of holes in the plot and fill them with dried leaves and some kitchen scraps and then cover the mound with the old original soil. If I do this in late fall, early winter (November/December) will the pile be warm enough to create finished compost by spring (March/April) ready for new plantings? Will I need to cover the plot with plastic to keep in the heat in or is our climate mild enough that just covering it with soil will do? And how deep and thick should the composting material be? I assume I wonâ€™t need to turn the pile, because I expect the resident worms to do their share. Thanks!
