Well I couldn't stand being away from my piles, since it was a warmer day I went out to the compost piles and 1 was 48 deg F...the other isn't ready to start yet.

Added 9 boxes of frozen veggies, straw, some compost from the old pile, and shredded leaves.
I tried the garbage can/weed whacker trick today for leaves...it really worked well for me, enough to keep me from purchasing another piece of stuff. ( leaf shredder )

this pile should be done in spring

this pile will be started sometime during jan/feb

Happy to be outside again, mud is bad though, winter's coming back tomorrow....

Thermometer used, reading 48 today, crust was frozen, no worms around

Uh...I must have missed the pictures of the hard days work!  But I appreciate the R & R!  Garlic bed/ Compost piles/ tumbler and beer 3170584802 

I found that my compost tumbler is better for mixing MM than for making compost.  Shocked

I am attempting to maintain an active compost pile INSIDE my hoop house this winter and got the temp up to 60 yesterday. Since my dog cannot get at it, I put in a bunch of blood meal.
THEN I did the same with my tumbler, which I am assuming is pretty much as much of a failure as everyone else's here...
But I thought I would try the blood meal and try to get turning it again. I guess I have not completely given up on mine either, however this will be my third year with it...
