A question on making compost under cover.
I've made some compost before, I've even managed to get it to "cook" but I very often end up with a soggy anoxic mess, even if I started off with all "browns" rain and groundwater just get in no matter how I cover it and get it very very wet. I see that people like charles dowding have theirs under a pretty sturdy roof. We've just moved house and I was wondering where to build the new compost heaps. After thinking about roofing etc I suddenly thought, why not inside? I have a 870m2 barn with no use for 90% of it, one area is only 2m high and still filled with all the old dairy cow stuff. Would making compost in a (tiny) bit of it be madness or sense? Obviously I would have to water it on occasion but the rain wouldn't get to and make it into the normal swimming pool.
