Yes, by allllll means.. get it going now,
scraps from the kitchen, spring clean up...
new grass clippings, etc., etc....
I do alot of composting, with 7 bins, and I still don't have enough room...so, I do take mine out, even maybe if it's just not completely done..
bag it up with the industrial weight bags, *do your self a favor and buy the toughest one's you can find.. don't skim or buy cheaper ones'... if you have any pointy object it'll poke out and rip the entire bag, or when you drag it to where you're going, it doesn't make it, or you just can't even pick them up the weight does it in..*

And then just store it, in an out of the way area..
**I do keep mine in the sun and I make sure I get black bags, to optimize sun's rays to heat up and finish composting down inside..**

I also for the last few years have been then bringing a bag or two that's ready to sift by spring down into my basement, then come spring,
I can pull it out and it's not frozen...
And then I can sift it in the spring time, when it's still chilly out... and not work up a gigando sweat sifting, and I'm doing something when it wouldn't be much to do around the garden anyways, and I have to sift ALOT OF COMPOST...

Works out great for me....

Did you start a compost pile????? [thumb]

hey sorry for the delay wiez. .

no i havent started a compost pile yet. I stupidly decided to do a garden AFTER THE FACT that i took all my spring cleaning leaves to the local drop off place for yard waste [Smile]

So i have a few friends that are going to let me come rake up their lawn and rob them of their preciouse leaves so i can get one going for next year [Smile] But i have PLENTY of grass clippings lol!
