Compost Monitor: 2014 Results

This is an update to this year’s compost monitor post showing the full temperature cycle of the pile.  At first, the temperature was cold and flat.  As shown in the original post, it was then saturated with water and the bacterial action took off.  The temperature eventually peaked around 140F and then fell off again.
