I didn't know that about adding lime to compost. I will do that. I have some new compost going in my compost tumbler but I also emptied out a large batch this past wknd. It wasn't all broken down but I just mixed it in with the garden soil, watered it and am letting it decompose some more that way. I have a large bucket of lime out in my garden though that I always have on hand, so will add some of that to the mix.

yeah, I've experienced BER also and learned off adding lime. So whenever I plant tomatos or squash I amend that area with Lime and then add it periodically throughout the growing season. But I hadn't heard of adding it to compost to help speed up the composting process, so that was good to know.
