It's better to leave it in the pile until you're ready to use it. That allows the fungi and other organisms more time to work.

Hi Scott: Keeping it in a pile until use is to encourage the continued castings from worms until your ready to spread it and use it. I note you're from Ohio; spreading is later in Spring, right? Good luck

I have two bins, the first is now been sitting a year untouched and is ready. The second is almost full and i won't be able to make it till next spring with it. If I remove the finished compost from the first bin now - is it best to put it in a pile or spread it on garden beds? I was wondering if there were any advantage as far as nutrient-value if left in a pile till i am ready for it verses spreading it? Thanks, Scott
