    Hope someone can help me. I got a composter last summer. I read the instructions and have been doing as it says. It did not give amounts of dirt that should be included. I live in Ohio so we do have freezing weather. I added a little moisture like it said and I put in fruit and veg peels, banana peels, egg shells, salad, (no meat products).

    However my compost doesn't look like it is doing much. Any suggestions?

    I've only ever made compost with a traditional compost pile. My dad taught me to cover each layer of garden/kitchen waste with soil and then to wet it well. This started the fermentation and kept the heat in. Is your composter the bin type or is it the drum type? I'm not sure it makes a difference.

    It's a drum. I think you may have solved my problem. I only put in dirt when I started it. Thanks I'll give it a shot. If you have any other suggestions, let me know.
    Thanks again

    You need to layer high nitrogen material with high carbon material, soil is not needed, and it needs to be fully loaded to work well. Make sure to take its temperature every day so you know when it's compleed its cycle. I loved my compost tumbler, it worked great when fed properly, but had to give it away when we moved. UIt's not going to work in winter weather like you have.
