new to composting

Hello fellow gardeners, I am fairly new to gardening but I am starting to love my garden and want to be out there every day! iv come across composting and started a compost heap in the corner of my garden. i really don't have a clue what I'm doing, so I just erected a little wooden structure to keep it tidy and started throwing bits and bobs in the heap with a little help from wiki step by step. However my heap just seems to be sat there all dry looking i add water and other water containing materials , any basic help will he much appreciated

    To be fair, lots of us have dry compost heaps this year.  give it time, mix your ingredients to you don't have too much of one thing in a layer, even if you leave it to one side for a bit.
    "Recycled beer" is very good if you have a gentleman who doesn't mind providing it. ( or stick it in a bucket , if you're overlooked then add )
    I'm sure you tube is full of videos of compost making.
    Give this a watch. All of Charles Dowding's videos are wonderful and a very reliable source of good information.
  • hey Hostafan1, thanks buddy... I will give this a watch right now :D
