Learning to garden (21) Hot beds, an update

Monday: 25-Apr-2016

About 07:00 this morning, the air temperature around the composter was about 6.2 deg. C and about 9.0 deg. C within the box.  Not quite hot, but warmer than the surrounding air.  This evening, I will wrap the composter in bubble wrap to prevent heat loss from the sides.  I tried this last autumn and raised the temperature inside the composter to around 25 deg. C.
