Because my outdoor compost container was full, I decided to try indoor composting of some shredded Jerusalem artichokes and sunflower material in some plastic storage boxes. After watering and mixing with cow dung pellets, about an inch of old potting soil was added.
During the winter I kept the potting soil cover moist. I should have covered it with some plastic, because when I harvested the compost about 2 weeks ago, one box was a little bit too wet.

The resulting compost was very black and had a lot of what looked like fungal spores. Experiment successful
