Love the garden and Love to COMPOST- As much fun as veggies

One of several videos I recently watched concerning the process of creating the great garden fuel that is Compost.

I have a pile going and I turned it a bit but I need to expand the process and get the “black gold” growing.

What to add?

How much?

When?

I like the idea of greens vs browns –  Nitrogen to Carbon .

 

But the real questions is what do you have access to?  Trees in the yard, grass that you cut?  veggie scraps, dryer lint, misc. fur and pet dander swept from house, coffee grounds (home or from local shop).

I also shred some newspaper with the mower and mix them in- they are also great for starting the weed prevent layer in the garden- but it can be the first layer before processed compost is added.
