If these clippings are from your own lawn, why don't you use a mulching mower and
just leave them where they are cut? If you are removing them from the lawn to
elsewhere, you are depleting the energy of the lawn and defeating your purpose.
you can make bad compost but good compost will not go sour when aged. A good
compost mix will reach a point where it stops breaking down. It is then
almost soil like. By itself it will be fine. If you made compost with the
wrong things (such as chemical laced ingredients) then the end result may be
deterimental to plants. Crap compost that sits around for ages in the
weather should not be a problem as the elements will undo much of the
damage. If you got it right from the start it will be good now.
One of the more interesting fertilizers I've played with was some
300,000 year old bat guano from one of the Texas Caverns. I aquired it
from deep in the cave with permission from the then manager when I
worked there 24 years ago. ;-)
Had to be careful with it as it was quite rich. Very, very high in
