Failed attempt 151024

Failed attempt 151024. Compost heap centre temperature against date/time. The flatline is an artefact of the lost signal being held at last known good value. Despite saying “outside temp” the blue line was a probe in the heap.

No more details.

Joanne’s note Oct 2016: Like our previous failed attempt, we just wanted to keep it in here for completeness (unlike big corporations, we don’t hide results that don’t support our aims!) and to make it clear that it has been hard work refining our compost making art to meet the Ingham spec! In retrospect it will have been getting cooler in October, and we hadn’t started wrapping our heaps in mypex woven black plastic for insulation on our exposed site. Also, we probably hadn’t added enough nitrogen or chopped the material up enough which was the key to our subsequent sucesses.
