I found that adding soil and/or fertilizer did not help that much. The ingredients you mentioned should work fine. Just be sure to keep the pile moist, when possible.

The ingredients you mentioned should provide sufficient moisture. I'd rather have a pile with too little moisture than too much. _________________ John Henry Wheeler Washington, DC USDA Zone 7
