I'm planning to have a covered, plastic cylinder half buried in the ground, and put 500 worms or so inside. After about a week of letting them settle in, I was planning to put my cat's waste in there for them to process. My plan is to put it in a shaded spot, amongst ornamentals.
Related to this I have 2 questions I'd like some help with.
1. My guess is that the conditions in the compost would tend towards acidic. Would adding a little lime once a month be a reasonable way to try and maintain an acceptable pH?
2. As for the kitty litter, that is definitely very acidic from the pine and urine, could I add this to the compost as long as I add some lime together with it?
Any help would be great
