- Tomorrow morning i plan to make a cup of tea with water heated by our compost…
Having cut the grass yesterday, the decaying grass cuttings are kicking out so much heat that you can’t even place your hand in the compost without burning it. So, we’ve buried a plastic bottle of water into the compost to see if it can heat it enough for a cup of tea, tomorrow morning.

I am a psychic, and you will be using a kettle tomorrow morning.
put some eggs in there, then you can have a proper breakfast

IT WORKED!!! It made a cup of tea so hot you couldn’t neck it, had to be sipped. I couldn’t hold the bottle (which had gone soft) as it was so hot.
Just read that link above, will cool mine a bit. Does it make me a compost geek if I now want a temperature guage for each of my 3 composts?Posted 3 years ago
are we doing not at 100c Grum or boiling isn’t 100c?Posted 3 years ago
All of the decent black tea I have here is 100c, so is the Chai. There are some of the more interesting white teas that I think are better done at 80 to avoid burning them which is still best done with boiling water added to cold.
