I have wanted a nice compost pile for a while, and recently my county sold the Earth Machine at a discount to reduce waste around here. I bought one and set it up and have been adding compost to it from our kitchen, and bringing home coffee grounds from work. Last night I was turning it and noticed some maggots. Some of what I read said these are good, other stuff says they are bad (Soldier Fly maggots I think they said?) Any of you expert composters have any input on this?<br>
I am working really hard at getting the 4:1 ratio down and trying to keep the compost slightly damp (our area is really dry we are in drought conditions and lots of fires nearby so I have been watering the compost every other day or so if it needs it).
