Re: Composting citrus

    What a great use for dried peels. I do not think I need to put them in
the oven though. The average humidity in the house is about 25% or so.
Drying herbs and probably peels is not going to be a problem.
        Tanks to everyone for anwering the compost question. The pH question
doesn't appear to be an issue.
