Compost Heating Up

After the very dry, hot summer the cooler weather and increased volume of organics is creating a very nice compost pile, which is steadily heading towards the ideal hot-cook temperature of 135. 

I turned and watered the pile this morning and was glad to see steam rise from the middle with the first fork -- I use A. M. Leonard's 4 Tine Bully Super Fork -- and it's all coming along nicely.
