I agree - two compost heaps are essential. It's important to vary the contents. Mix grass cuttings with screwed-up newspaper, cardboard or straw, etc, so you don't get a lump of sludge. I find that eggshells and avocado shells don't compost, but I put in all other vegetable matter I can lay my hands on - and turn the lot once in winter. In spring I seive the well-rotted compost at the bottom if I want to use it for seedlings.
