  1. Do you have tips for using compost bins, rather than an outdoor pile? We have several bins that we’ve used over the past few years -alternating between them from season to season. How do you know when the compost is ready to use?

    • Greetings,

      The compost bins can make compost faster but will require a little more work for turning as well as potentially adding water. You will know it is ready when it has broken down nearly or completely and you cannot tell what it was prior. It should have no smell or have an earthly smell.
