Kusanar, how's the compost doing?
I haven't been updating this thread in a while, but my compost is doing fine. I've got two compost cages full of resting stuff, I need to put it to use in the spring. Luckily I already have a project planned for it. I might need to get a third one at some point though.
I'm going to have to do some maintenance on my compost soon, the marine plywood separator is starting to give up. It's lasted for two years in a constantly we environment, and it was second hand to begin with. That's pretty decent. Come spring I'll have to empty out the whole thing, put in a new separator, and maybe change the tarps.
It's about 20F outside at the moment, and the compost is about 70-80F. It's heating up at the moment though, I just emptied it about a week ago. Lately I haven't been turning or wetting it all, I just empty the left side, and move the contents from the right side to the left, soaking them completely in the process. Seems to be working pretty well, although the bottom 4-6 inches stay too dry to break down.
