Profile: You've tried every recipe for fast compost, and you still want to make compost quicker.

Advice: The trick to accelerating decomposition is particle size. The finer the pieces you add to your heap, the more quickly they break down. Put leaves and yard waste through a shredder (or power over them with your lawn mower) and run kitchen scraps through a food processor before adding them to your pile.
