Composting - some questions
I was introduced to this site couple of weeks back and was impressed with the amount knowledge spread on this site. I tried to do my due diligence with searches but could not locate the answers I need.
I am trying to set up a worm bin and compost bin. Worm bin is 2 weeks old and seems to doing ok. Now trying to set up a separate compost bin. My yard is small and I can not easily generate green/brown ratio. We do generate some green kitchen waste every day. I have been throwing all green waste and some paper shredding to compost bin. Because of space limitations, I can not set up staging area while one compost bin is cooking
1. One of the benefits of compost bin is when it gets hot, it kills weeds and other unwanted seeds. It seems difficult that my bin will achieve that temperature given that I will slowly accumulate required material. I was thinking of using solar oven to heat up weeds. Will that kill it? Is there any chance that using solar oven for two days might turn green weeds into brown material?
2. Many vermi-composter recommend microwaving/freezing food to kill unwanted pests. Will solar oven help in this scenario?
3. Since my compost bin is getting some feed everyday, can I use the compost bin as "staging place" for worms. Some say worm food needs little ageing. I can grab some aged food from compost bin and use it to feed the worms
