Season ending here, cleaning up broccoli, lettuce beet tops, weeds & other garden plants that needed pruned but no browns to add.
What to do??
I have tons of HM compost.
So I added 3 wheel barrow loads of done 2 year old, HM compost & mixed it in.
Should work. eh?
Also added a load of soil I pulled out of the Green house this spring so I could add new compost to the soil boxes, a perlite mix.
I mean it is brown. :)
5' X 5' X4' bin of 2 yr old HM compost.

Won't know till spring, but when I started to add to the bin, it was looking real good.
It'll be the bottom layer & full of worms. I think that helps allot too.

Can't see why this wouldn't work, Dave. Composting is a pretty forgiving science.
