My rotator drum-shaped compost bin is FULL of food scraps, fall leaves, and green matter- leaves, etc. It is wet as well. I mistakenly kept adding to it weekly until I realized I needed to leave it awhile-I\'ve been turning it and have not added any new matter in several weeks. Will it compost?

Yes, but if it is over full, it can take much longer. You can add Mycorrhiza, which is a beneficial fungus, to the compost. This will help it to move along at a much faster rate.

Thanks for this- I purchased granular mycorrhizae and have searched for how to add- proportions? use it as is or make a concoction- compost tea? All answers are much appreciated.
