No meat, keep it lightly moist, turn often! Enjoy in a few months :)

You might need more green - grass clippings, weeds, that kind of thing.

Just try to keep an even mix of green(grass clipping,veggie scraps,ect)and brown(twigs,deadleaves,ect)keep it turned and just barely moist. You can stick your hand in the middle and feel heat it its working right.
