Turning and Heat

Back at the compost pile again! We use the tractor to turn it. I can't imagine making compost without the tractor. All organic matter will compost eventually, but if you turn it, it decomposes faster. Our pile is breaking down beautifully inside. The internal temperature is between 80 and 150. While you would think manure and moist weeds would stink, it doesn't. It will probably shrink to half it's size by the time it's ready to use. One thing we don't put into this pile is bind weed. That plant is crazy. Thanks to the town, we got a gorgeous load of wood chips. So, this pile should be ready for next spring. Ah, patience.
