As I look at the charts that catagorize Greens and Browns, I notice that "fresh" leaves or grass clippings (for example) are listed as "Greens", but when they are "dried" are considered "Browns". How does an organic material go from being high in Nitrogen/Protein to high in Carbon/Carbohydrate just through drying?
Is it the moisture content that determines whether an organic material is classified as a green or brown or is there some chemical change that happens?
