you guys are killin me!

Ok, so I'll keep adding browns. The smell is much better, more like rotting food than rotting butt. I'll air it out some also. It is an old 55 gal drum and I'll just pull the bung and cover with a coffee filter.

so onto creatures. Are a small continent of flies inevitable? especially fruit flies? or is it just because of the adjstment?

I think I will just buy my compost as the neighbors are close here in our Mobile Home Park and I would surely get complaints. No conpost bin here for sure ....

Have you thought of vermicomposting ? Using the wormies? We have a few threads on here on wormies. I am posting a big one.

One of my heroes, too! Pete, who is 91, is still out there leading songs (his voice is going, but his spirit is strong). He still chops wood to heat his home in Beacon NY - oh, to have such energy! The words of the song, Turn Turn Turn, which Pete set to music in 1959, are from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.

Did you know there is a movement afoot to nominate Pete for a Nobel Prize?

I live among cabbage fields. Nothing like driving past a recently harvested cabbage field on a hot summer day. Blech!!!!!
Another reason to enjoy being in Kenya this summer.

In addition to more air and more "brown" compostables, you might try some crushed charcoal. This will absorb some of the noxious odors and hold them for slow release as nutrients to the growing plants later.

Just a not, charcoal and charcoal briquettes are not the same thing.
