hello,
i have grass growing up through my compost bin. the bins and sawdust toilet are on the land that i own but, don't live on yet. so, the bin isn't filling up really fast. i guess my question is is any of this a problem?
otherwise i have had no problems and can't wait to live on my property and use this system full time!!!
thanks, bw

It shouldn't be a problem.

Weeds can prosper in an unattended compost pile, making it difficult to use the compost later, and spreading undesirable seeds to the garden. Consider adding a thick cover layer of straw or leaves to discourage weeds, or possibly a permeable tarp that will let rain percolate through. A dry pile discourages biological activity, inhibiting composting action.
