New To Composting......I Need Your Help
Okay, I'm new here. Last year was my first ever garden and I had almost too much success with Square Foot Gardening lol. This inspired me to tackle composting. My family & I are avid juicers, which means WAY tons of fruit & veg scraps. I mean alot. My hubby built me a Pinterest inspired compost box last fall, Here's my issue, I am adding to it so frequently ( a large tupperware bowl everyday) that it never really breaks down. Last week my mom told me to go buy another bin as it will never finish at this rate. So off I went to my local green depot and got a classic black compost bin. I got a bale of dirt, added that and some leaves and am now also adding compost accelorator to this new composter and my old one.
My question is how long will my old compost pile take ( rough estimate?) do I stop turning it? it is FULL of worms :) I have no idea what I'm doing here and was hoping for some compost to use in this summers garden.
How do other people who have super huge amounts of kitchen scraps do this?
Thanks for any insight.
