Compost Bin

It is so hot and humid. Why would any one work on a compost bin on such a day? Well, we had a lot of wind and rain yesterday morning. Things got moved and blown around the yard. I went out to just tidy up the yard but ended up rotating the compost bins. I feel guilty. I do not do all that should be done to properly maintain the compost bin, like layering of materials, regular turning, temperature monitoring etc., but still, after a while, compost happens. My compost pile is truly a tribute to all the unseen microorganisms and under-appreciated macroorganisms (mites, grubs, insects, earthworms) that make the miracle of decomposition possible.
