I'll do this in sections...
So, I don't get too confusing...
Can I collect my kitchen scraps and do the same? I'm guessing put them in a big garbage bin out in the garage or even out in the snow so it freezes and doesn't stink and wait until spring
and throw it in my compost bins?
I did that one winter, cause I didn't want to trudge to the bin...and it worked.. I did mine in Ziplock baggie/containers... kept it easier to keep in sections, smaller portions to move and store, and clean up was alot easier..
But you can still add the scrap's during the winter, especially if you load those chopped leaves in between..
But I've also just kept throwing in just kitchen scrap's over each other, does take a bit of learning curve every spring
, but you'll get a feel for it, and you'll learn how to keep it going or get it going.. just be dilagent and watch all signs of what happens when you do what to it.. you'll get it.. *just takes a bit of time*
and don't hesitate to keep asking questions,
that's how you learn..
