I'm very excited about composting this year. Last year's endeavour was fruitful, but as I had mostly browns (the majority of my organic matter was straw from my chicken coop) it took a very, very long time to break down. This year, however, I've tapped into a nearly unlimitted source of greens - I work for a lawn-care company, and I've been bringing home a crate of grass clippings every day. I mix this in layers with pine needles and other yard waste I raked up a couple months ago (I have a very large pile of this), sprinkling liberally with lime to balance the acidity of the needles. Whereas before I had only a dull heap of straw, chicken droppings, and kitchen waste, I now have a very warm pile of rapidly-composting matter. By mixing the lawn clippings with the yard waste I should be able to produce a huge volume of compost this year.
Of course, I have a question; can anyone see a problem with having lawn clippings as my almost-only green matter? There is also kitchen-waste and the occassional urination, but that's nearly it.
