My husband and I recently bought a home and I decided to compost and use it to grow our grass and a small vegetable garden. I just got started, finally got a bin in the ground, and would like some help and guidance. I took a large tote and cut the bottom out of it and added all of my compost items with a layer of top soil and watered it slightly. Then I capped it. I read that I need to stir it every 2 weeks to get soil in about 3 months. How accurate is this? If I continually add kitchen scraps and such to the bin and still stir it every 2 weeks, will the stuff that is already decomposing help eat up the newer, fresher additions? Please help. I'm sure tryin lol.
