I have read that one can get a very good compost by simply using only alternately layered sections of grass clippings and leaves. Apparently grass clippings and cow manure have the same nitrogen content. Has anyone tried this?
Here in the north the gathering scenario will be....rake and bag scads of leaves.... overwinter them in their plastic condoms and then as you mow your lawn in the spring to get your grass clippings you then begin the composting and in six weeks or so you can harvest fine compost.
Sure sounds easy enough.... I also wonder if one should sprinkle a thin layer of soil too?
Any thoughts appreciated...Ron
