Hello, I'm a new gardener, and I want to start a compost pile. So far, we have sticks and grass clippings, as well as some plants that have been pruned. How do I go about composting? I saw the list about what can go in there, so I'll keep adding. But what do I do? I'm supposed to turn the pile, right? How often? How do I know if it gets hot enough?
And please, slow explanations, I'm a blonde and its friday and my brain is almost off for the weekend.
