August Green Log

18 Aug: Reassuringly undramatic progress – the pile of sweet smelling debris is growing, slowly, and all being well will start digesting itself!

14 Aug: We and our guests have managed to muster some more left overs, including meat and fish and well-boiled up (for stock) chicken bones. Nothing dramatic seems to be happening down the hole yet, but remarkably it all seems to remain very sweet smelling and inoffensive.

1 Aug: A solemn procession – John, Janet and Marion – went to witness the first feeding of the cone! We had actually managed to accumulate some more left overs like bacon rind and some tired remains of a pudding. We were impressed how warm the interior of the solar heated cone had become.
