We have a black tumble composter that is about one-quarter full of organic plant food and garden clippings. Now that the weather is heating up the bin has become quite smelly and is attracting flies.
The contents are wet, without adding water, and drip throughout the day. The inside is about 97 degrees (f) for 7 hours then slowly cools down to about 63 degrees (f) for about 3 hours until the sun warms it up. I have added some soil from the yard hoping to get some microbes to grow.
I'm stuck on how to troubleshoot the compost to get the balance right. Any thoughts as to what might be done to improve the break down of the material?
