I let the worms do most of my composting so the cooler weather drives them deeper into the ground. I think I'll post a sign "Beware, attack worms"... emoticon

I need a sign that says 'caution composting' because one of my son's friends has threatened to steal it!

How about making a sign and hanging it on your compost bin!
A friend of mine has a sign she hangs on her greenhouse door Trespassers will be composted!

Just relax, warmer weather is coming in a couple of months. Remember, compost happens.

Thank you!

My compost is 'shrinking' yet isn't warm.

We had a day in the 40s yesterday so I got antsy and went out and edged a garden and tossed it in the pile with leaves and kitchen scraps. It may not compost til spring but I'll have a jump on it. Best time to prune and edge for me are in the winter.

Everything's frozen here, so the only composting going on is deep inside the pile. I just keep adding stuff as I have kitchen scraps and when it warms back up, that stuff will start composting down.

In IN my compost pretty much stops composting. I leave one pile alone because it will be ready in the spring because it got a start in the Fall. The other pile I continue to add my onion, citrus, and cabbage scraps to because my worms get disturbed with this. I do keep layering leaves over it also and it will start composting with the warming weather in April.

Things usually compost more slowly during the winter due to lower temperatures. Your compost pile still needs oxygen and moisture any time of year, but due to the lower outside temps, it will not reach the tempertures that allow it to comopost quickly.

Could be a lack of oxygen. How big is it and what's your average outside temperature?

How well does your compost do in the winter?

Our is 'going down' but not producing much heat. Is this normal?
