I???m making my compost with straw from the barn where I keep my sheep and goats. Plus I???m adding all my kitchen scraps of vegetables, fruits, egg shells and coffee grounds. Will this help decompose everything?
Linda C on Feb 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, definitely. You will have exquisite compost if you keep the ratio of dry material to wet at 20:1 and use this. It's possible to have good compost in a couple of months.
On the article about composting, you mentioned spreading the compost around flower beds - can this be done on top of the mulch and the compost nutrients seep into the bed, or is it better to dig up the mulch and mix the compost in? Thank you.
RPGII on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That's a very efficient idea. The rain will wash the compost down through the mulch and eventually the compost nutrients will seep through the soil.
How long does it take to compost in a barrel ..when using paper and grasscuttings???
Frank Y on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That will depend upon whether the barrel is in the sun; how you manage the moisture and how often you turn it. It can be anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 months.

Odor reduction
My compost is in a residential area and I have to carefully keep it covered to keep the odor down and even then on hot days the odor seems to leak out. Since I've been applying Jobes Organic Compost Starter each week when I add lawn clippings and gardening remnants I've notice the odor is practically gone. Maybe that's a side benefit. Anyone have a comment on this?
