Composting is a great way to keep organic material out of the waste stream. It saves tax dollars and provides you with a valuable soil additive. Composting is easy to do if you follow a few simple guidelines.
First layer: 3"-4" of chopped brush or other coarse material on top of the soil surface allows air circulation around the base of the heap.
Second layer: 3"-6" of green material, grass clippings, or food waste.
Third layer: 4"-8" of "brown" material, such as leaves. Add water as needed.
Fourth layer: 1" of soil serves as an inoculate by adding microorganisms to the pile.
Fifth layer: Repeat steps 2-4 until the bin is almost full. Top off the heap with a layer of leaves or straw and scoop out a "basin" at the top to catch rainwater.
A properly made compost pile will reach temperatures of 140-160 degrees Fahrenheit in four or five days. At this time you'll notice the pile "settling," a good sign that your pile is composting properly. After 4 or 5 weeks, turn the pile, putting material from the outside of the pile into the center of the new pile. Add water if necessary. You shouldn't need to turn your heap a second time. Your compost should be ready in 3 to 4 months.
