OK, I turned my compost today and was sad to see it had no heat in it at all. I think I had let it dry out too much, as it was just damp, so I watered it pretty good. It's in an 8 ft across stock watering trough in which I put drainage holes, and it's two feet high. It's made up of mainly horse manure and old hay that I clean up from around their round bales after they finish one and before I put the next one out. The compost also contains kitchen plant waste, flower bed trimmings/weedings and a few layers of coffee grounds. It smells nice, but it's just not "cookin."
