How do i make compost in winter?
    #537485 - 02/01/02 03:52 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Is it possible to make compost in the winter and if so how? Or would i be better off just pasturizing some natural cow dung?

You can make compost any time of the year. If you can get the compost hot enough. For most people that means you can't make it in the winter, depends where you live. Are you in Wisconsis, or Florida? Jamaica or Siberia? Is it 78 degrees outside today, or 35?

Pasteurized cow dung is great. And a lot easier to make than compost any way.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

actually, if you had started the compost heap in the late summer or fall, it would have went straight through the winter, even in snow. the bacteria in the center are what decomposes it, and, undisturbed, the center is an almost constant 60-70* in the center b/c of the reactions taking place.

You can also compost indoors in garbage cans or pop bottles. Check out this other post.
