Thick fruit rinds and corn cobs in compost?
I have a bunch of watermelon, cantaloupe, and jackfruit rinds that are fairly big in size. I also have a bunch of corn cobs.
Is it ok to throw them into my compost pile when they are big? Are they going to compost at a really slow rate (months or a year)?
I'm diligent at turning my pile and adding the right ratios of browns and greens. I just hate throwing big things into my compost pile but I'm getting tired of chopping up kitchen scraps into smaller pieces just for my compost pile. Composting is supposed to be easy and fun, and its becoming a chore if I need to chop everything smaller.
