Compost Day 04: The 2nd turn

Our compost heated up incredibly fast -- a perfect mix of ingredients and tropical weather brought the temperature to 155ºF in two days. We turned it, and two days later...

Look at the steam! Greg (who's developing sustainable agriculture curricula for a Burmese NGO) and Jonathan (a wandering forest gardener & seeker of truth) begin to turn the pile.
Checking the temperature of the compost: a perfect 160ºF!
Else (an intrepid australian & earthling rights activist) expertly shapes the steaming pile.

More to come as the freshly-aerated compost heats up again!!!
