It’s starting to be consistently below freezing, and I wasn’t able to shred leaves in time before the snow.
Luckily, I still have a trash can’s worth in the yard and a bunch of food scraps…and a bunch of worms. I added my stuff to the pile at mid day to minimize any last heat escaping while I opened it up.
I’m surprised they’ve stuck around in the large bin- it certainly helps for when the composting process slows to a crawl.
The trash can composter is completely stopped, so I’m trying to figure out how to get that kickstarted again- too small of a system to add compost toilet material to, and it’s filled to the brim anyway.
How have you been handling the colder temperatures?
