    Hello! What a useful infographic, we ordered some cheap compost for this weekend and plan on dispersing asap. How fun we sound =) Oh well, at least I can check it off my list.

    Any thoughts on how to break up twigs into compost-size pieces?

      I have looked into shredders, but they are expensive if you only have a few things to break up. I would consider it if you have a lot of twigs and branches though. Other than that, just snapping them is the only thing I can come up with.
