    • MIXING INGREDIENTS
      • After you have added all your ingredients, you need to mix in adequate measures of: moisture, oxygen, and nitrogen/carbon (grass clippings and leaves) sources, to generate the right conditions for decomposition.
      • For the ultimate compost the ingredients should be turned, and stirred on a weekly basis, in the warm weather. Poke at the pile with a pipe, or rake handle to aerate the mixture.
    • MIXING INGREDIENTS
      • Add enough liquid to keep the pile moist, like a rung out sponge, but avoid getting the mixture soggy. On a hot day, a beer tastes great, and your compost will love it.
      • Cover, and let simmer, at a temperature of 130 degrees Fahrenheit, for as little as 4-6 weeks, or up to a year or two.
    • SERVE TO YOUR PLANTS
      • After your compost is finished cooking, you may serve it to your plants, but remember, Presentation is more appetizing.
      • A perfect presentation is to rake back the mulch, carefully from your plants, use a large server, and give each plant a generous portion. Rake back the mulch, and give them a nice after dinner drink.
