A question about composting
Topic of composting is little confusing. I read some articles which say young weeds and grass cutting (green stuff) contain nitrogen and dead weeds and plants contain carbon (brown stuff). How can a live plant contains mainly nitrogen and dead one carbon.
Any how my actual question is that can't I bury the recommended portions of both brown and green stuff in soil and they will turn into compost instead of making a pile of them or doing so in a composter. thanks.
