A Second Turn of the Compost Pile

Posted on Apr 20 2009 - 6:03pm by Mike Lieberman

It’s about a week since the compost pile was first turned. When I first opened up the can the lid was sweating. That is supposedly a good thing because the compost is supposed to heat up, so it can do it’s thing.

I took the broomstick and shovel to it again to get the air circulating and to mix up the browns and greens.

It seems to progressing nicely, so I threw a big heaping pile of fresh food scraps onto the pile and layered the browns on that. My guess is that I should have compost to use pretty soon.
