So, after going through the effort of cutting an IBC tote into compost bins, I end up getting, for the having, 8 yards or so of stump grindings that have been sitting on the ground for a couple of years. What a boost to my composting program!
The best part is that I was already on site with my excavator and dump truck. Didn't even have to make a special trip. It's the little things....

What a  great starting point for compost, it is already mulch
This is the sort of stuff that gives you the ability to create some wonderful fungal dominant compost for teas or used straight.

It was a very timely thing, too. All I had on hand to put in my new compost bins was some yard trimmings and four six gallon buckets filled with dried onions, dried fruits and nuts, and the like. The pile was getting a little stinky for lack of carbon (as I understand it).

BTW, the reason for dumping the dried long term storage food was because the seals had failed and the stuff was stale as could be.
 
And then we all jump out and yell "surprise! we got you this tiny ad!"
