      it doesn’t matter. Even dry it will eventually compost. Just makes it take longer thats all. Everything composts… eventually… allways.

      composting is the breaking down of material…….. wich is rotting via microbs the same thing that happens on the forest floor.
      and you dont need a plastic barrel with holes in it. we make 20,000 cubic yards every six months piled on the ground in wind rows.

      o a tip. do not plant directly into compost.
      mix it in with existing soil for log term better garden soil.
      and it is just to spungie.

      Nice video on composting. I am showing this to the kids as we are planning a compost bin, or maybe just a pile for next year to use in the garden and flower beds I’m growing.

      I work in a resturant and get all the scraps I need. Dozens of egg shells that I rince the stick in the oven for a few minutes place in a paper sick and crush them. Also I can get all the coffee grounds and tea bags. On my 2nd batch of compost I beleave it will take longer because of winter coming

      This guy’s voice is odd….. And the way this compost pile is going its to complicated. just dump what you have in the pile as you get it. stir it up now and then, and add a can of beer.

      I have found this tool to be equally as necessary as compost for my garden. It kills weeds very efficiently and requires no bending over – weedcaneDOTcom

      Actually, I usually drink the beer, piddle in a bucket, fill the bucket with water and chuck the mixture on the compost heap.
