Just wondering how your new compost bin is going? It was great to see you get such fantastic advice and suggestions from other community members. I trust you found their posts useful. Feel free to post again anytime.
This morning I was fortunate enough to visit the Bayswater Bunnings store and enjoy a gardening workshop on composting with @robbayswater.
Rob provided lots of great advice for the attendees, but the message he stressed over and over was to ensure your compost isn't too dry. Rob recommends adding the same amount of water to your compost as any other material. So for example, add a cup of water for every cup of kitchen scraps.
Many attendees were curious about what should and shouldn't be put in the compost. Rob says citrus and onion should be avoided, as it affects the pH level too much, takes too long to break down and can attract the wrong type of insects. Meat and dairy should also be avoided as they attract rodents.
Visitors to this popular topic should also check out the fantastic discussion kicked off by the Hot Composting Bays created by @timjeffries. See https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Gallery/Hot-Composting-Bays/cns-p/1615
