New to composting
I have taken shredded leaves (mostly Oak) and added grass clippings in two different composting bins and also tried just creating a pile. I make sure it is moist, I turn it over on a regular basis (except when frozen in the Winter). Each Spring, I have a pile of leaves and grass. What am I doing wrong? I have added lime to no avail, I have added cow manure also to no avail. I have read some of the posts on covering the pile which is what I was going to try next because I think perhaps it is too wet. Any suggestions?
