What should I do if the compost is too wet?

For composting, a certain amount of moisture is necessary – the optimum condition of the compost is like a squeezed out sponge. If the rotting is too wet, the ventilation – and thus, the composting process – is disturbed. You must then add some “woody” materials, such as straw, dry grass, bark mulch, paper napkins, paper bags and rotting leaves. Furthermore, you can add 2-3 scoops of fresh raw compost from the harvest chamber, because it contains microorganisms necessary for the composting process and brings the it back in transition faster.
