I have a compost question.  This is my first attempt at composting - I just
completed a bin (3'width x 5'length x 3'height). I have plenty of brown
material, but what can I add this time of year that would be considered
green?  We do eat a lot of vegetables - but the ratio seems too small!
Is there something other than actual 'green material' that I can substitute
in the winter? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
