Backyard Gardener: Some of the lesser-known materials that are compostable

The background shows my compost pile which is contained in two corrugated sheet metal bins. One contains finished (or almost finished) compost and the one shown contains freshly added materials. In the lower left is a sieve that I built with ½ inch hardware cloth which is placed over a wheelbarrow. In the upper right is the finished, sieved compost.
