How do you get compost going in a desert climate?
I recently moved to a desert climate from a subtropical one.
What do you do to help make compost in such conditions? The best luck I've had so far was hauling bags of leaves & laying them several inches deep on top of the cruddy caliche junk that's our "topsoil" .
It took a year, but they did fluff the soil up & supported a nice colony of earthworms under the moisture they created.
But a year! It takes even green stuff, packed tight, a looonng time to compost. I have located a good horse manure source, that will help
So what do you other dry-landers do?
