Speed of decomposition. heap heat and eventual results can vary a lot! See a range of possibilities for making compost. This is May and already there is a decent amount of new growth. I show you how we add it to heaps of varied types and dimensions here. A key tip is to balance green and brown. Often this can automatically regulate moisture levels - you want it moist but not wet. There is no obligation for heaps to be hot. We see how red worms (Esenia fetida) arrive as heaps cool down, naturally.
