Is there such a thing as stirring compost TOO often?
I've had my earth machine composter for about a month. I started by filling it about a third of the way with dried crushed leaves, and I've been adding fruit and vegetable ends, peels and scraps every day. Every time I add wet ingredients I stir things up very well with a shovel. All the composting articles say to stir often, but they seem to be geared at getting people to stir a few times a week. Is stirring daily better -- will my compost develop faster? -- or am I messing with it too much?
