Compost question for Mr. Compost

Post by Marc Ri » Sat, 02 Jul 1994 10:50:45

Hello Jim, first of all congratulations on all the splendid info you

Question: Hot composts; in a 27 cu foot commercial plastic composter
only the centre gets hot. Would it not make sense to thermally
insulate the container to encourage the heat to spread towards the sides?

I notice that bacterial action is so much faster in the heated area
and if I churn the batch, it takes forever for the heat to build up again.

Your opinions are appreciated,
