my nappa cabbage bolted, can it be saved or is it just compost fodder?
I live in the city (one that does not allow chickens) yet I'd like to use a hot bed this spring.  My neighbors, and my wife (and probably the local by-law enforcement) would not appreciate me bringing in a pile of manure.  So I'll just try to use my regular compost (mostly kitchen scraps and yard waste) in place of manure, any special considerations?  Special additives needed?

you should try peeing in your compost directly Chris. On a dark night, with no neighbors around, it can be very therapeutic.

My compost pile and bins have all frozen solid this winter.  Any suggestions on how I can give then a jump on life this year and get them going a bit earlier than usual?

sounds like your looking for some sort of submersible electric pump, they come in many different shapes and sizes, most often used for sump pumps, pond aeration/circulation, etc.

is it possible to use a reciprocating say (sawzall) to trim hedges and shrubs?  is there an attachment to do this?

don't forget that deep litter really can get very deep, several feet in some cases! so if you do build a roof structure remember to make it tall enough to accommodate this, otherwise you will be hitting your head! a lot!
