Dear Pete thank you for your blog about composting. I’m interested, partly because we try to compost where I live but probably do it badly at present and partly (mainly?) because the person I am researching (and who is the driver for my own blog), wrote many things during her life, including a pamphlet on how to create a compost heap. She wrote this at the outbreak of WWII when people in the UK were being urged to grow food. I’m sorry I can’t even send you a picture of the pamphlet at present as I am in the States, far from our archive of her publications.

The hexagon shape sounds a good idea from your description.

Best wishes

Liz Howlett
