So before I start my first compost pile, I read as much as I could here and there.
I pretty much understand the general concept of mixing browns and greens and how to have good proportion of both.
My main concern is, what happens if you don't have a lot of browns. I live in the middle of a field. My 1 acre land doesn't have trees (only 2 small...) and 30% of it already has grass (yay! lots and lots of greens) the rest is pretty much weeds and long grass. I don't think I'm gonna have a lot of leaves.
So I'm not too sure what I could put as browns. I think my main source would be paper toilet cores but still... I feel like I wont have enough browns.
When I first bought the land, there was 5-6 hay stack. So I guess I do have hay... but I don't know if I can recognize it haha..
I'm wondering, If I post a picture of my backyard, would you guys be able to recognize hay from weeds, etc?
Or tell me if there is browns in there...
I know that sound stupid... just throwing it out there.
