Compost bottles - Tractor Ted Farm School

Tractor Ted is helping to make silage. Silage is fermented from crops and used to feed cattle during winter. The process of silaging is not dissimilar to the process of composting, although silage feeds animals while compost feeds plants.

Try the following with your children and show them how vegetable scraps can be turned into rich, dark compost for growing seedlings.
