Brown items in compost
Ok another probably stupid question....
I have what seems to be a never-ending supply of 'green' items for the compost bin; grass clippings, food waste (peelings, apple cores, etc). I struggle with the browns. Ok, I almost fund Amazon single handedly and receive a mountain of cardboard that I know would be perfect, but I really don't have the time or inclination to hand shred (or cut with scissors) into tiny pieces to add to the pile.
I'm sure there's an easier way that having to buy an industrial shredder - what do you put in for browns if you don't have a shredder? Or a I just being lazy and do I need to set aside a few hours a day cutting these boxes into tiny pieces?
