Hi Bobby …Indeed you are composting. As you have noticed moisture content and temperature can effect this process. Moisture content is in fact one of the most important factors along with the carbon to nitrogen ratio. If you go to http://www.cfe.cornell.edu/compost/microorg.html there is some great material on composting. You might want to look at the student project sections for further projects on composting. There is also a good site at http://www.compost.org/AboutComposting.htm . Composting is natures perfect recycler. I myself compost and as with most of my projects it has ballooned into mountains.. I composted 800 cubic yards of leaves last year…Need some compost?…Mark
