Keep composting anything that rots. And remember: Everything organic eventually rots. Don't worry so much; composting is not rocket science. You have more important things to worry about. You're not going to hurt your soil by digging a trench and burying organic matter (trench composting)... This was the method my dad used decades ago and it is a valid and valuable way to build soil health. Soil is used to being digged through; think of the digging of moles, voles, groundhogs and other creatures. Don't stress over ratios of green/wet to brown/dry. Just pile it up, even in small piles, and let it rot. I have extremely heavy clay soil. I often make tiny "micro-piles" as I weed, simply scooping up whatever small weeds, etc I've got in hand and plopping them under the nearest plant. They'll rot. They'll get incorporated into the soil. Keep up the good work!
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
