We are in Central Florida, the compost seems to heat up quick here, or maybe it is just what we put in it.

Just moved this past month to a house and can finally have real full size compost bins!!!!!!
We used to compost in 50 gallon trash bins on the patio of our apartment-Trust me it can be done but has it's own special conciderations.

Anyway, I am very excited to report the new bin is 152 degrees in the middle. Right now we have only two bins, one for the current compost pile and the other for our cover materials. We have a great time stealing all the bagged up leaves from our neighbors.

It is amazing that people spend money on bags to collect leave to have them hauled away. We got perhaps 15 bags of leaves from one house today. (We are using them for more than just cover in our bins. We are using them as weed control mulch around raised bed gardens as well.)

Even though it is silly for people to spend time/money to bag up leaves to be hauled away, at least our county composts the yard waste and we can get the finished compost for free (well we have to shovel and haul it) it is great stuff, I'll never buy dirt again.
