Question of the Day

My compost pile smells terrible, even in winter. What can I do to get rid of the odor?
If your compost is a little, um, fragrant, you have what’s called an anaerobic condition, which is decomposition without oxygen. To eliminate the odor, you need to do two things. First, turn the compost to get more air in there. Second, add material with a high carbon content, such as shredded newspaper, sawdust, twigs, or even wood chips.
