Composting is the process of breaking down organic matter, such as food scraps, into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. Over time, the compost will decompose and can be used to improve the quality of your soil. By adding compost to your garden, you can help to improve the quality of the soil and reduce the need for chemical fertilizers.
How does compost work
If you have a composter, it’s probably best to just throw everything in there. It might take a while for everything to decompose, but at least you’ll be able to use the compost eventually.
Once it has decomposed, you can then use a sack to collect the fertilizer, right-clicking on the bin should give you the option to fill it. A full sack will allow you to fertilize 4 times before it needs to be refilled.
How to craft a composter
A composter is a container that can be used to convert food into compost. The composter has a capacity of 50 units(10 compost bags), and each unit is equal to 2% of the composter’s capacity. When rotten food is placed in the composter, there is a 10% chance that a worm will appear in the composter.
To make a composter, you’ll need:
-One Hammer or HammerStone or BallPeenHammer, or a similar tool
Crafting the composter requires a carpentry skill of 2.

Why Your Compost May Not Be Working?
