I am starting with a brand new composter--plastic, no bottom, easy-open top, no turning mechanism, 3 feet tall x 2.5 feet wide.
Can I start now or should I wait until Spring? Temps here are now consistently below 50F and last night was first night of 30F; light snow possible during Dec./Jan (southern France in sheltered valley, about 1000ft of elevation).
I have plenty of freshly fallen leaves, recently chipped olive branches and leaves, and appropriate kitchen scraps.
What do you suggest?
Thanks! I am looking forward to my new garden and to participating in these forums.
