Some tips for successful composting
Be careful to remove all plastic. Throw to compost fine debris, and think about stir your stack to aerate it and prevent it from rotting. Flush pile if it is too dry, in case of external dryness eg. You can for this pour wine or beer.
Never compost meat or fish manure, dog or cat manure, weed seeds, and rotting and diseased branches.
When using your compost, always mix it (no more than half the proportion) with the soil. This is because pure compost burns plant roots.
All you have to do is install your compost maker ! Choose a place that is easily accessible and shady, and place it in the excavated soil: the microorganisms that thrive there will accelerate the decomposition of the waste.
And you, do you compost your trash?
