I've found an easier way to deal with turning it. I try to turn it on the 15th of every month. It's a lot of work to move all of the compost from one side of the bin to the other. So recently I got lazy (or smart depending on how you look at it). Rather than move it all at once, I move a little bit every 3 days or so.
|I started by pulling the compost from the top of the pile to the ground in front of the bin.|
|After 3 days I moved the compost in front of the bin to in front of the other bin. Then I had more room to pull compost out of the first bin.|
|Three days later the stuff in front of the second bin got moved into the second bin and more was pulled out of the first bin.|
|Eventually the first bin ended up empty.|
|It took about 2 weeks but all of the compost ended up in the second bin.|
