Definition as written by Terry:
Compost can be made using an aerobic process where air (and heat) help break down the material into humus; or an anaerobic process which relies on different critters (and more time) to finish. Weed seeds and diseased plant materials are not good candidates for either process, but they stand a better chance of being rendered harmless if the compost pile gets hot enough. See hot composting.
