new compost bin + what am I doing wrong?
I'm very pleased with the new compost bins I built my very own self out of free wood pallets I got off Craig's List. I just used some metal hardware and screwed them together, and hinges so the front pallet swings open. Three of them all hooked together. Nifty.
When I shifted the compost from my old jury-rigged straw bales, the stuff I started last summer still wasn't done. I turned it once every week or two and watered it once a week when it hadn't rained. Contents are: lawn clippings, leaves, kitchen scraps, shredded office paper. The stuff is not longer recognizable, but isn't compost either. Maybe half way in between. Also it looks like I don't have any worms in there. Advice? Thanks.
