I have seen the green and brown rule around, and remember it has to do with nitrogen and carbon. I was wondering, if something that was green is left out outside and it turns brown, does it lose it's nitrogen? Should I still put it in compost and count it as green? is it brown? I would think it's still food so I should still put it right?
I cut my grass and put it in my compost I always leave some out to dry and turn brown. The fresh grass is a green. The old dead grass I put on later is a brown. I dont usually leave much to dry as I usually need more greens than browns in my mix.
