One bin too high in nitrogen, one too high in carbon
I've gotten around this week to spreading the 5 finished compost bins over the areas of the garden that will have beets, beans and peas. Problem is, one was from when we first moved in and has a very high level of nitrogen (primarily kitchen scraps). It also had a year old fully intact egg, and stinks of onion and ...well, you get the point.
The bin beside it was from when we ripped the lawn up out front, and layered it with coffee grounds and more kitchen scraps, grey water, etc. There is a lot of partially decomposed moss in that one.
I have been mixing the two together to spread out on the garden areas, but the soil from the one bin stinks to high heaven.
It's being laid a couple inches thick over maple leaves which are covering flipped lawn (from last November).
It has been a fairly dry spring here.
Will the smell settle down with a bit of rain? Should I try to get some composted manure to apply on top? Am I needlessly stressing about this? (The worms didn't seem to mind the nitrogen level.)
