Somehow that doesn’t seem the same as what you are doing with the black sand. On a maybe-somewhat similar note, the compost coming out of my way-too-expensive-rolling composter gets hard and brick-like when I put it on my beds and it dries. Would adding sand to it help loosen it up? Reply David The Good March 27, 2018 - 2:28 pm Sounds like the compost needs some extra roughage. You might throw in more carbon material as it composts. I’ve seen it do that as well. Sand might make it worse, though I do throw soil into my compost piles. My guess is its too heavy on kitchen scraps and a bit low on carbon in the composting process.
