Is there anything in my yard that I *can* compost?
I'm in the process of cleaning up my yard after years of neglect (not mine). Sadly, most everything in my yard is a generally undesirable plant - the lawn is a mixture of bermudagrass, johnsongrass, crabgrass and the like. I've got two fruitless mulberries, a eucalyptus falling over in the back, two different varieties of ivy on either side, a row of privets down the north side, full grown Ailanthus on everyone else's property so I have seedlings in every container, the galium is taking over the northwest corner and there's vinca everywhere.
But that's not my point, sorry. I'm starting a compost pile and was wondering if the contents of my yard are unsuitable for compost. I know I can't compost ivy (and eucalyptus??), but what about the rest of these?
Fruitless mulberry leaves
Chinese privet (Ligustrum lucidum)
Sowthistles, curly dock, groundsel, horseweed, etc
