This is our compost bin, made from recycled pallets. I layered dry grass, fresh cut grass, manure, and oversized ( sliced with a hoe) squash and zuchhini to build the pile. I wet each layer down as I built and tossed in 2 hand fulls of organic fertilizer on each layer.
The temperature of the pile at an 8″ depth was 144 degrees F yesterday morning, 8/11.
