My current project is Compost Bins.
There isn't a ton of information out there about the specifics of composting and how it all works.

I'm going to use this thread to keep track of all of the things i'm learning about Compost Bins.

Major Questions
What determines how full the compost bins get?
I think it's the ranking of the organic material used, though i'm not entirely sure.
http://www.toadwater.com/TWeb/CompostItems.php


Does using specific items as your compost really affect the sun fungus:honey fungus:earth crawler ratio?
I tried Rotten Carrots vs. Dead Hemp Stalks. Rotten Carrots did give me more Sun Fungus, but it's also ranked higher on the compost list. I'm not sure if the ratios differed between the two organic materials, or if the ranking has an impact on how full the bins get?

How much of an impact does higher grade have on Broken vs. Destroyed bins?
Do the higher grade bins allow for more Broken bins to be repaired for tinkering experience vs. being completely destroyed? From what I read on the wiki, Grade is supposed to protect the bins from being destroyed. What's the impact canvas has on that?

How does Tier decay & recovery work exactly?
After watching the Compost List for a few days it seems like they recover 20? (10) items used each day?

Why is Unripe Tomatoes stuck on 221 used (Tier 4)?
Why is Ripe Tomato stuck on 100?

Are Peppers or Radishes worth using at all? Do they give Sun Fungus?
radishes good for compost worms?

What's the strategy to get the most Sun Fungus & Tinkering experience?
Max Tinkering Experience - Mass Low Tier + Low Grade + Canvas?
Canvas greatly increases the rate at which the bins break AND destroy.
Low Grade Bins break/destroy more often?
Large amounts of anything will drop the tier down very low very quickly. Perhaps Unripe Tomatoes would fit best here?
Max Sungus -
70 Ripe Tomato
112
70 Rotten Carrot
307
70 Regular Carrot
103
70 Carrot Greenery
168
OMFG 1 DEATH CAP MUSHROOM!!!!
70 Dead Hemp Stalk
141
70 Hemp Stalk
344

1175 Sun Fungus total from 420 Uncovered Grade 20 Compost Bins.


Tests
135 Compost Bins (No Canvas)
Regular Carrots - Harvested
-Sun Fungus: 276
-Honey Fungus: 238
-Earth Crawler: 64
-Bins repaired: 1
Notes: Less Sun fungus than I was expecting. 2 Sungus per Bin, and I was expecting 5-7. Tier 9-8-7.

Hearty Red Strawberries - Harvested
-Sun Fungus: 357
-Honey Fungus: 309
-Earth Crawler: 64
Notes: 2.6 Sungus per Bin. I was expecting Regular Carrots to do better than Hearty Red Strawberries. The Carrots started with less Tier power, maybe that made an impact. Tier 9-8.


I'll be looking for the answers to these questions and adding more details to this thread.
If you know the answers to any of these questions, please share with me I would love to know!
